This work proposes to forego species or morphospecies identification used by ATBI and RBA but rather to tackle the problem at another evolutionary unit, the community level, and proposes that a part of diversity can be estimated and compared through a rapid acoustic analysis of the sound produced by animal communities.

The objective here is to demonstrate how species, trait and phylogenetic diversity can be combined together from large to local spatial scales to reveal the historical, deterministic and stochastic processes that impact the compositions of local communities.
Combining the fourth-corner and the RLQ methods for assessing trait responses to environmental variation.
How the complementarity between the fourth-corner and RLQ methods can be exploited to promote new ecological knowledge and to improve the study of trait-environment relationships is illustrated.

Existing metrics in phylogenetic diversity metrics are organized by expanding on a unifying framework for phylogenetic information to improve the choice, application, and interpretation of phylo‐diversity metrics.
A guide for using functional diversity indices to reveal changes in assembly processes along ecological gradients
It is demonstrated that a reliable test for changes in assembly processes along stress gradients requires functional diversity indices measuring either functional richness or functional divergence, which provide good power to test for increasing niche complementarity with declining stress across a broad range of ecological contexts.
Is the originality of a species measurable
This paper uses a phylogenetic tree of 70 species of New World terrestrial Carnivora to measure the originality of a species within a set and finds that originality must be one of the criteria used in conservation planning.
On the challenge of treating various types of variables: application for improving the measurement of functional diversity
It is proved Gower's distance can be extended to include new types of data and an evaluation of the real contribution of each variable to the mixed distance is proposed, concluding that such a generalized index will be crucial for analyzing functional diversity at small and large scales.
