The actuality of the present paper is substantiated by the need in preservation the landscape and biological diversity of nature-protected territories to achieve the ecologically optimal structure of land use as one of the main targets of their sustainable development. The paper describes methodological approaches to analysis of the nature-protected territory landscape diversity, presents the landscape metrics, calculated using the FRAGSTATS software as well as images of their spatial distribution.
