A species-area curve is drawn by plotting the number of species against the area. How is it that when a very large area is considered the slope is steeper than that for smaller areas?
According to Alexander Von Humboldt species richness increases with increase in explored area. This happens due to the fact that as the area increases the availability of the natural resources also increase which supports diversification. Hence the value of slope increases and it becomes steeper.
