r

• __Cellular automaton:__ Square array of cells where each
cell takes one of the 6 values representing the landscape
on a 1-square mile resolution

• __Evolving
single-parameter model:__ A
cell dies out at

random times and is replaced by a cell chosen randomly within a circular radius r* *(1 __<__ r __<__ 10)** **

random times and is replaced by a cell chosen randomly within a circular radius r

• __Boundary conditions____:__ periodic and reflecting

• __Initial conditions__: random and ordered

• __Constraint:__ The proportions of land types are kept equal
to the proportions of the experimental data
