Species richness Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Species richness is the number of different species represented in an ecological community, landscape or region. Species richness is simply a count of species, and it does not take into account the abundances of the species or their relative abundance distributions. Species diversity takes into account both species richness and species evenness.
