Keane, Robert E. 2012. Creating historical range of variation (HRV) time series using landscape modeling: Overview and issues (chapter 8). In: Wiens, John A.; Hayward, Gregory D.; Safford, Hugh D.; Giffen, Catherine M., eds. Historical environmental variation in conservation and natural resource management. West Sussex, UK: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. p. 113-127.

Simulation modeling can be a powerful tool for generating information about historical range of variation (HRV) in landscape conditions. In this chapter, I will discuss several aspects of the use of simulation modeling to generate landscape HRV data, including (1) the advantages and disadvantages of using simulation, (2) a brief review of possible landscape models. and (3) the pitfalls and limitations of the simulation approach. This information provides a reference for planning, preparing, implementing, and interpreting HRV simulations and their results.

Keywords: historical range of variation (HRV), modeling, landscape
