Benthic microalgal richness and Shannon diversity in experimental metacommunities


Species richness in the local and regional communities represents the number of different species present in the community. Shannon diversity is a diversity measure that considers both species richness and evenness in the communities and thus can inform about dominance patterns in the communities. Shannon diversity was calculated using biomass data.
