The Measurement of Biological Diversity

St Andrews is a world-leader in the development and deployment of statistical techniques for estimating and measuring biodiversity, across populations and communities of a staggering array of organisms. We measure and seek to understand genetic diversity across different levels of populations, communities, and ecosystems.
