Diversity Metrics explores species diversity measures. There are 625 possible worlds to explore (four preset). The user samples the species landscape by positioning sample plots or transects one by one, or by using an autosample button. Diversity metrics include the species-area curve, the Shannon-Weaver index, the Simpson index, and beta diversity. Used in teaching Conservation Biology at Yale.
