Taxonomic and phylogenetic diversity

Metric

Metric 1
Name:

Relative change in the number of species (%)

Description:

Relative change in the number of species (S) using the year 1900 as reference (e.g. -50 corresponds to a decrease in 50% of the number of species in the cell since 1900, (S_year-S_1900)/S_1900*100)

Unit:

Percentage points


Metric 2
Name:

Absolute change in the number of species

Description:

Absolute change in the number of species (S) using the year 1900 as reference (e.g. -50 corresponds to a decrease in 50 of the number of species in the cell since 1900, (S_year-S_1900))
