عنوان مقاله [English]
Achieving a more comprehensive ecological analysis, landscape ecology needs to consider the natural features of that landscape, human interventions, and perceptions in a coexistence framework. In this regard, in a hilly settlement, the hills' ecological status could be examined from at least two sources: quantitative ecological indicators and users' visual assessments. This study has investigated the possible relations between these two and also the degree of their compatibility with each other in the four essential hills of Sanandaj (TOOSNOZA, NISHTEMAN, MELLAT, and DIDGAH). First, using FRAGSTATS software, the ecological indicators were obtained from satellite images. Then 12 indices were finalized through principal components analysis. In the next step corresponding to these indicators, an online questionnaire collected the visual evaluation level of users. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed a significant relationship between the ecological indicators and users' visual evaluation. The two ecological indicators CONTIG and FRAC had the highest compliance with the participants' evaluation. In other words, the two indicators of continuity and complexity can be more appropriate measures to study the ecological status of hills.
