What is land impact/prim equivalency?

Exactly what does this mean?

Land impact is how many prims a mesh object requires in Second Life. For AviNation it is much simpler and is not used, instead there each mesh object is 1 prim. In Second Life though, 1 mesh object could easily tkae 30 prims or even more depending on how detailed and complex it is. Additionally, land impact for meshes in Second Life goes up as the mesh is stretched bigger and it decreases as the mesh is stretched smaller.
