This study develops and applies a model for landscape resource assessment. It is designed to estimate the landscape resource change, both positive and negative, caused by urbanization in the Boston metropolitan region since 1945. The model thereby may be useful for making better planning decisions relating to land use allocation and management practices as affecting and affected by various resources, their characteristics and their changes. The overriding thesis of this study is that human activity involved in urbanizing or metropolitanizing the landscape disturbs and upsets the natural environment in several ways.
