Meaning, model and metaphor S. Pickett We will use the ecosystem concept when we translate rigorously used in design and planning?
How should urban designers use a patch dynamics to the design realm Figure 5. Like all scientific concepts, patch dynamics has three components: a core meaning or definition, a suite of ways to specify the concept in particular Patch Dynamics as Metaphor models or applications, and the already-mentioned metaphorical We see that all ecological concepts will have a core definition, will need dimension.
The metaphorical connotation of any scientific concept allows to be applied through specific models, and will have informal, imagistic the idea to be communicated to the public, to specialists in other disciplines, content as metaphors. How does patch dynamics fit this mold? First, and even to schools of ecology beyond those which generally use it. The term itself suggests images of patchwork known ecological idea, the ecosystem Pickett and Cadenasso We quilts, or mosaics of different colors and patterns of fabric stitched together 17 to form the familiar coverlets of folk origin.
The term also suggests use the ecosystem concept here both because it provides a well-developed example of the dimensionality of ecological concepts, and because it complex configurations of the elements of a pattern, similar to Byzantine 19i chapter is useful in translating patch dynamics to urban design. At its core, the mosaics composed of hundreds of individual tiles. This the shifting patterns of a kaleidoscope.
These images are useful in initiating patch dynamics general definition is specified—or turned into a model—to apply to certain a scientific concept, or in communicating it in vernacular conversation. But situations and collections of organisms found in particular places. For they are not adequate for rigorous quantitative comparison, experimental example, there is the model of ecosystem function at the Hubbard Brook manipulation, and interdisciplinary synthesis.
For this, other dimensions of patch dynamics Experimental Forest in New Hampshire, which allowed the discovery of acid the concept are required. The ecosystems at Hubbard Brook are defined by small watersheds, and are limited underground by a nearly impervious bedrock Likens and Bormann The study of nutrients and chemistry of the Defining Patch Dynamics streams draining each spatially delimited watershed was key to discovering The first step toward scientific rigor is a technical definition that captures the acid rain and learning how it affected ecosystems Likens The third insights of the metaphor Pickett and White Patch dynamics is defined dimension of the ecosystem concept, the metaphor, is used in informal or through three components.
First is the existence of patches—on land or non-specialized communication. These contemporary patch models Rivers Railway result of succession, or as a consequence of the movement of materials, show the many layers of interacting processes that are involved in shifting Hydro Line Park Limit energy, and organisms among them. Third, if individual patches change, mosaic landscapes.
Bormann and Likens use Samples Sites One important feature of the concept of patch dynamics, like many other a related metaphor to capture the images encapsulated in this three-part Iroquois Falls Lakes important ecological concepts, is that it can apply to many different kinds of definition: the shifting mosaic. Of course, not only does the arrangement systems and spatial and temporal scales.
Rather, it can also be used to examine fine-scale shifts in spatial each, and the power of the pairing. Another fine-scale example is the creation of pits and associated mounds by porcupines along a few meters of hillside in a small desert watershed. These Patch Dynamics Models pits and mounds appear and disappear across the desert as porcupines dig Patch dynamics as a general concept alone has little power to advance for bulbs of perennial plants.
After the porcupine moves on, the pits fill and ecological science. The advance comes in the application of the general the mounds erode. Patch dynamics has even been applied productively to concept in specific models. Models are the tools that put meanings into streams Fisher In the case of patch dynamics, models can exactly quantify 19 patches, assess the processes that occur within patches, determine the fluxes that link them, and identify the boundaries that govern the fluxes.

When scientists build models, they select the components from Creation and alteration of spatial heterogeneity through time patch dynamics, it is sufficient to recognize the appropriate hierarchical level of their causal framework.
Patch change by The patch dynamics framework takes as its focal phenomenon the alteration Mosaic Patch Patch succession focuses attention on within-patch of structure and function of spatial heterogeneity over time. This statement configuration generation change Flux processes. However, patch change can also be describes the highest hierarchical level of the framework, and comprises generated by fluxes of important ecological four more specific processes: 1 mosaic configuration, 2 patch generation, Natural Ecological agents from outside individual patches.

The highest level of the framework identifies the phenomenon of inter- organisms or the flux of nutrients or pollutants est as the creation and alteration of spatial heterogeneity of ecological systems through time. The next level identifies the be delineated as patches, and that those patches have a spatially explicit major causes of patch dynamics as mosaic configuration, patch generation, patch change, and the fluxes that connect and across mosaics Cadenasso and others Patch delineation requires that areas affect patches.
Although each of the second level causes can be further subdivided into additional, detailed causes, we only Any material, energy, or information that can illustrate that division for patch generation. Patch generation is caused either by natural disturbances or by the engineering differ from one another in structure, composition, or function. Spatially effects of physical or biological factors.

We have section name Patch generation refers to all processes that can create new patches in an already mentioned that patch generation area. In ecology, they can be physical forces that destroy existing vegetation can have the component processes of either patch dynamics cover, or generative biological processes that build new structures Pickett disturbance or ecological engineering. In the and others We therefore group patch-forming processes into same way, mosaic configuration may reflect those that are disturbances and those that are the engineering effects of underlying geological or climatic templates.

This slope in the Negev Desert, Israel, can be conceived of as mechanisms of patch change and are shown composition or architecture of an assemblage of organisms at a site over consisting of two contrasting kinds of patches: rock and soil. These two patch types differ in their role in the water dynamics of the system, with rocky patches shedding runoff water, and soil patches absorbing it. The soil patches come to have more in Figure 9 Pickett and others Succession in turn has many causes, ranging from competition to water available than they would based on rainfall alone, and support diverse communities of annuals and bulb-bearing pe- dispersal to physiological tolerances to the effects of animal consumers on rennials.

Ecologists looked far 90 possible categories of urban patches based jointly on built structures, Machlis et al The apparently unaffected by humans. Combining the ecological kinds of systems they studied, and the kinds framework of patch dynamics and the interdisciplinary human ecosystem of processes and interactions they included patch dynamics framework indicates how appropriate the application of patch dynamics is in those studies and models. However, as to urban systems. In the past, due to remote sensing, ecologists discovered ecologists considered the systems they studied to have six key features.
This means that most Figure A patch mosaic from Baltimore, Maryland. Based on a novel classification by M. Cadenasso and others, this always correct.
