Fig. 1: The distribution of the standardized indices of biomass, species richness, and properties loss in the Atlantic Forest hotspot.

From: The erosion of biodiversity and biomass in the Atlantic Forest biodiversity hotspot

Fig. 1

Frequency distribution (coloured bars) of the index of loss for a forest biomass; b tree richness; c wood density; d maximum height; e seed mass; f ecological groups; g extinction threat; and h endemism level, with their fits by the Normal or Weibull distributions (solid bold lines), the estimated mean and its 95% confidence interval (CI). Dashed lines separate negative indices (losses due to human-related impacts) from positive ones (gains due to human-related impacts). Bars are highlighted by colours ranging from dark red (high losses) to blue (gains). The standardized index of loss is dimensionless and is highlighted by different colours ranging from dark red (high losses) to blue (gains).
