This is a plot of the percentage cumulative abundance plotted against log species rank (Lambshead et al. 1983). It is a graphical method used for comparing diversity between samples. Note that the lower line has the higher diversity and that if the lines for two samples cross then they will tend to rank differently for different diversity indices.




The output shows the plot and a table of the species in rank order for each sample.
