Publication: Consumption-based biodiversity footprints – Do different indicators yield different results?

In this study we calculated biodiversity footprints for 140 regions in the world with an environmentally-extended multi-regional input-output (EEMRIO) model. We included three alpha diversity indicators (loss of mean species abundance, relative abundance and relative species richness) and one indicator of gamma diversity (vulnerability-weighted relative species richness loss). Our results highlight the relevance of including both alpha and gamma diversity indicators in land-based biodiversity footprint calculations.
