英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Monitoring of urban growth and the characterization of its patterns in the Wuhan area of central China from 1988 to 2013 was performed using an integrated approach of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information system (GIS) techniques and statistical methods. We also undertook a qualitative analysis of the impact of urban growth on landscape ecological security. The results showed that the Wuhan area was in a rapid process of urbanization between 2000 and 2011, with an average urban growth rate of 10.666km 2 /a and 2.969km 2 /a in the surrounding region and city proper, respectively. An aggregated pattern was the primary growth type in the whole study area, while linear and leapfrog patterns mainly occurred in the surrounding region....
