Abstract

We question Fangliang He and Stephen Hubbell’s claim that species–area relationships overestimate global extinction. (Nature 473, 368–371; 2011). We contend that they do not test their claims against real data on global extinction or threat. We also believe that they address only a small part of the problem.
