NEET Botany Biodiversity and Conservation Questions Solved

According to the concept of species area relations:

(a) The number of species in an area increases with the size of the area

(b) Larger species require larger habitat areas than do smaller species

(c) Most species within any given area are endemic

(d) The larger the area, the greater the extinction rate

According to the concept of species area relations, within a region, species richness increases with increasing explored area, but only up to a certain limit.

On a logarithmic scale, the relationship is a straight line described by the equation:-

log S = log C + Z log A

where S= Species richness

A= Area

Z = slope of the line (regression coefficient)

C = Y-intercept
