Abstract

A method for comparing species richness parameters obtained in sample plots of different sizes is presented. The method is based on Gleason’s model of species-area relationships. The high positive correlation between the number of species and the area makes it possible to construct the model on the basis of as few as two points. The essence of the proposed method is the calculation of the ordinate of a third point using the coordinates of two known points whose values have been obtained as a result of a two-step description of the phytocenosis in a sample plot consisting of two nested plots.
