RSE: Number of Newly Discovered Rare Species Estimation

A Bayesian-weighted estimator and two unweighted estimators are developed to estimate the number of newly found rare species in additional ecological samples. Among these methods, the Bayesian-weighted estimator and an unweighted (Chao-derived) estimator are of high accuracy and recommended for practical applications. Technical details of the proposed estimators have been well described in the following paper: Shen TJ, Chen YH (2018) A Bayesian weighted approach to predicting the number of newly discovered rare species.
