Figure 1

Moments of Rényi diversities plotted versus sample area A for North-Central European beech forests on eutrophic loam soils (Melico Fagetum). The moments of order equal species number , the curve corresponds to the Shannon diversity index, and the curve is related to Simpson diversity index. The full lines correspond to the curve sections that were calculated from the data material. The dashed sections of the curves were modelled according to (9) using the parameters listed in Table 3.
