Abstract

Shown in columns in this Excel spreadsheet are (1) Cell identifier; (2 & 3) X and Y coordinates for the centroid of each grid cell, using the California Albers (EPSG:3310) coordinate system; see http://spatialreference.org... ; (4) Observed species richness; (5) Observed redundancy (1 - [richness / number of specimens]); (6) Observed weighted endemism (1/number of cells occupied by a species, summed across all species in a cell); (7) Observed corrected weighted endemism (WE/cell richness); and (8) Number of randomizations with a CWE score lower than observed; 950 and above is considered significant. All calculations and indices are from the Biodiverse software package (Laffan, S.W., Lubarsky, E. & Rosauer, D.F. (2010) Biodiverse, a tool for the spatial analysis of biological and related diversity. Ecography. Vol 33, 643-647) — http://shawnlaffan.github.i...
