Selecting complementary target taxa for representing terrestrial invertebrate diversity in the Australian seasonal tropics

Oberprieler, Stefanie; Andersen, Alan N.; Yeates, David K.


It is usually not practical for invertebrates to be comprehensively included in biodiversity surveys that underpin conservation planning, and so a representative subset of taxa needs to be selected. One approach to representativeness is to select taxa whose patterns of richness and composition are most strongly correlated with those of total invertebrates (i.e. all taxa combined). However, if different groups show very different distribution patterns then ‘total diversity’ cannot be considered...[Show more]
