Abstract 
In this paper we discuss the notion of independence of frames in the theory of evidence from an algebraic point of view, starting from an analogy with standard linear independence. Families of frames can be given several algebraic interpretations in terms of semimodular lattices, matroids, and geometric lattices. Each of those structures are endowed with a particular (extended) independence relation, which we prove to be distinct albeit related to independence of frames.
