What Does Taxa Richness Mean?

Taxa richness also known as species richness is the count of different species present in a region or ecological environment. It does not indicate the abundance of the species rather tells the number of species.

Trenchless technology utilizes construction techniques such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and microtunneling to ensure that endangered species and delicate flora and fauna in general are not disturbed when pipelines require crossing through environmentally sensitive locations.

Trenchlesspedia Explains Taxa Richness

The measuring of taxa or species richness is a very important factor for ecologists and environmental conservation biologists. This factor is actually very difficult to measure and never be accurately measured or estimated by observation.

Special methods have been developed in order to estimate species richness. Two kinds of data are used in richness studies. First, is incidence data in which any species detected in a sample is noted as being present and second is the abundance data in which the abundance of a species in each sample is tallied.
