There are single trait metrics that include abundance (e.g. number of individuals per species, relative basal area per especie) to weight the relative contribution of species to the index. Some single-trait metrics […]

Some of the databases reflect species diversity of a specific country or region, others focus on a species group or habitat to bring together all available knowledge about that specific group, taxa […]
