Distribution of richness estimates based on simulated subsamples. Distribution of 10 simulated replicate richness estimates, at each of 4 (sub)sample sizes, 97% similarity level, compared to "true" (postulated for this simulation) richness = 236 OTUs. Lower end of box = 1st quartile; central line in box = median; upper end = third quartile.
