In large-scale biodiversity surveys, the observed species-richness inevitably underestimates the real species richness of a certain geographic region. Nonparametric estimators may be feasible tools for predicting the potential tree/shrub species richness using data from large-scale forest surveys that gather reliable information. In light of the ma...

... We used the rarefaction curve and Jackknife2 method in order to compare the observed richness with the estimated richness (Oliveira et al. 2016), using the ESTIMATES 9.1.0 program (Colwell 2013), after 100 randomizations of the order of the samples with a 95% confidence interval. ...
... However, contrary to the effect on richness of IAT, species composition in urban areas was mostly affected by variables acting at broader scales (i.e., climate variables, PCNMs 1, 2, and 3). It suggest that climate determines composition of IAT in strongly modified ecosystems, as well as affecting native species composition in non-urban ecosystems (Neves et al. 2015;Rezende et al. 2018). Thus, urbanization can be considered as a filter at local scales (Aronson et al. 2016), affecting the richness of IAT from a regional pool of species previously filtered by climate variables acting at broader scales. ...
