There is considerable interest in measuring diversity, especially advanced techniques that make possible scale-dependent characterizations. Scale-dependent diversity characterization is provided by one-parametric diversity index families using so-called diversity profiles. In this paper, techniques of scale-dependent diversity comparisons are reviewed and density dependent vs. density independent representations are discussed. Finally, a new method to characterize the β-diversity of a community is proposed.
