Large Contiguous Landscape

Large, contiguous landscapes are large areas made up of a particular kind of land-cover, or a mixture of land-covers that is not interrupted by human development (industrial, residential, or urban development). For example, a large grassland or forest where there are no roads or areas where people live or work is a large, contiguous landscape.
