Exploitable results – Robust statistical analysis of species richness in the Mediterranean Sea
Result descriptionA novel framework to extrapolate quantitative measures of species richness in large areas from accumulation curves based on extensive sampling at the family level coupled with estimation of species-to-family ratios from a subset of sampling units where organisms are identified to species level is provided.
