If you were to measure the species richness of a forest, you might find 20 bird species, 50 plant species, and 10 mammal species. Abundance is the number of individuals of each species. Glossary; Whittaker () described three terms for measuring biodiversity over spatial scales: alpha, beta, and gamma diversity. Alpha diversity refers to the diversity within a particular area or ecosystem, and is usually expressed by the number of species (i.e., species richness) in that example, if we are monitoring the effect that British farming practices have on the. A hotspot is a region where species diversity is high but threatened by habitat loss.
