Agreement between naïve and similarity-based diversity profiles for different simulated communities. (A) For different numbers of OTUs sampled from the total pool of 2048, (B) for ultrametric (grey) and non-ultrametric trees (white), (C) for communities with different Fisher’s alpha diversity values, (D) for communities with different tree imbalances. For panels (B), (C), &(D) sampled communities sized was 256; (A), (B), &(C) tree imbalance was 9.54; (A), (B), &(D) community abundance distribution was logseries with a Fisher’s Alpha of 1. Proportion of agreement is based on 100 simulations. “black square symbol” (q = 0), “red circle symbol” (q = 1.1) “blue triangle symbol” (q = 3.1), “magenta triangle symbol” (q = 5.1).
