Diversity analyses for the data sets in Allen et al. (2013)

Orange cells: original data and the Chao1 estimate for the original data. Yellow cells: empirical taxa richness and estimated asymptotes of diversities for the adjusted data, i.e., data with the original singleton count being replaced by the estimated value computed from Equation (5) of the main text, and SE is obtained by a bootstrap method. Green cells: taxa richness estimate from CatchAll (2012).
