In this paper we are concerned with a quantitative method of Landscape Ecology. More in details we consider an environmental system distributed in landscape units (ecological sectors) and we propose a new mathematical model in order to implement a method for the evaluation of the ecological state of the system under investigation. After having performed a stability analysis of the model, we apply the proposed procedure first by considering separately each landscape unit and then extending our

Our investigation includes some numerical computations that were performed for a Northern district of the Turin Province, using an approximation procedure that should avoid stiffness problems.
