Models and estimators linking individual-based and sample-based rarefaction, extrapolation and comparison of assemblages


Aims In ecology and conservation biology, the number of species counted in a biodiversity study is a key metric but is usually a biased underestimate of total species richness because many rare species are not detected. Moreover, comparing species richness among sites or samples is a statistical challenge because the observed number of species is sensitive… (More)
