Results show that at time scale, the protection equality values were relatively low, but it displayed a trend of increased values during 2012-2015. At city scale, fine cities had high protection equality values with more than 0.5, the other four cities were less than 0.4. Protection equality metric revealed different results of ecological representation of wetland parks at different scales, which will be of important significance for conservation strategies making of wetland habitat in the process of establishing wetland protected area network for decision makers.
