Species Richness Calculator

Enter the total number of species and the total area into the calculator to determine the species richness.

Species Richness Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a species richness.

SR = TS / A

  • Where SR is the species richness
  • TS is the total number of species
  • A is the total area

Species Richness Definition

A species richness, also known as species density, is a measure of the total number of species in a given area of land. Species richness is also considered a metric of species diversity.

Species Richness Example
