The Generalized Simpson's Entropy is a Measure of Biodiversity

Abstract : Modern measures of diversity satisfy reasonable axioms, are parameterized to produce diversity profiles, come with an effective number of species to simplify their interpretation, and estimators to apply them to real data. Generalized Simpson's entropy has all of these features and can be used as a measure of biodiversity. Moreover, unlike most commonly used diversity indices, it has unbiased estimator, which allows for robust estimation of the diversity of poorly sampled, rich communities.
