Biodiversity Index Calculator

  • Table of Contents

A Biodiversity Index Calculator helps measure the biodiversity within a particular habitat or ecosystem. Commonly used indices include the Simpson's Diversity Index and the Shannon-Wiener Index. These indices consider the number of species present (species richness) and the abundance of each species (species evenness).

Features of the Biodiversity Index Calculator:

  1. Input Fields:
    • List of species and their respective counts.
  2. Output:
    • Simpson's Diversity Index.
    • Shannon-Wiener Index.

How to Use the Calculator:

  1. Enter the name and count for the first species.
  2. Click the "Add Another Species" button to add more species input fields as needed.
  3. Enter the names and counts for all additional species.
  4. Click the "Calculate Biodiversity Index" button to see the Simpson's Diversity Index and Shannon-Wiener Index.

The result will display the calculated biodiversity indices, providing a measure of the biodiversity within the specified habitat or ecosystem based on the input values.
