Abstract:   (1037 Views)
The management of areas with landscape ecological approach helps us to have more integrated of considering completely management and also keep the area’s values. Lar National Park and Varjin Protected Area are the most important areas of their biodiversity and wildlife habitats. The aim of this study was quantification of fragmentation in Lar National Park and Varjin Protected Area and to compare managements and Integration assessment of Rangeland habitats in study area. For this reason Land use map was prepared using RS and GIS techniques. Then we surveyed, the fragmentation of the areas at the level of the class and the landscape using landscape’s metrics. Finally, we used fragmentation geometries methods to study the effect of human factors on rangeland habitats, the results show that Lar National Park is more integrated than the Varjin Protected Area. Also, outbuildings and changing suitable habitats to gardens and agricultural lands cause fragmentation and disintegration in Varjin protected area. The results of the metrics in the geometries of fragmentation show that the roads are the most influencing factors on the fragmentation of good range lands in Lar National Park and Varjin Protected Area, also, man-made structures have caused disintegration and negative impact on the wildlife habitat in the study area.

Keywords: Landscape Ecology, fragmentation, Lar National Park, rangeland habitats, landscape metrics, Management of protected areas, Varjin Protected Area
