Applications of the Berger Parker Index

The most common applications of the Berger-Parker index have included the comparisons of different community assemblages across sites within the same ecosystem. Applications of the index have included assessments of differences in evenness of invertebrate assemblages across grazing gradients; differences in earthworm communities in relation to soil contamination; species diversity and distribution of snakes along elevation gradients; the differences in mosquito populations between forest, anthropogenic, and ecotone environments; and diversity of vegetation types between natural forests and plantation forests, to name a few examples of the way in which the index has been used. However, the index is limited because, although it represents differences in abundances across species present at certain
