bioLEC is a parallel python package built to calculate the Landscape elevational connectivity (LEC). LEC quantifies the closeness of a site to all others with similar elevation. It measures how easily a species living in a given patch can spread and colonise other patches. It is assumed to be elevation-dependent and the metric depends on how often a species adapted to a given elevation needs to travel outside its optimal elevation range when moving from its patch to any other in the landscape.
