Dear Barbara and anneliders,
although this in not a direct response to
Barbara's question on the Shannon index, you may
find some discussion on this and another indexes
dealing with polychaetes in my paper: "Martin,
D., Ballesteros, E., Gili, J.M. & Palacín, C.,
1993.- Small-scale structure of infaunal
polychaete communities in an estuarine
environment: Methodological approach. Est. Coast.
Shelf Sci. , 36: 47- 58", which can be downloaded
The paper deals with two very different
polychaete assemblages and discusses the
usefulness of different methods to estimate
minimal areas for sampling, which at the same
time, are excellent to analyze the small-scale
structure of these assemblages. Among the methods
we tested, there were the diversity area curves.
Thus, the paper includes some discussion that may
be useful in the sense of Barbara's question.
