Author(s): Hechinger, Ryan F; Lafferty, K D; Huspeni, T C; Brooks, A J; Kuris, A M | Abstract: Measuring biodiversity is difficult. This has spawned efforts to seek taxa whose species richness correlates with the species richness of other taxa. Such indicator taxa could then reduce the time and cost of assessing the biodiversity of the more extensive community. However, the search for species richness correlations has yielded mixed results. This may primarily be due to the lack of functional… CONTINUE READING
