Comparative studies of parasite species richness among host toro can be confounded by uneven sampling effort Sampling ceases to be a confounding factor when extrapolation methods are used to estimate true species richness. Here, Bruno Walther and colleagues review examples of sampling bias and the use of extrapolation methods for circumventing it. They also discuss the confounding effects of phylogenetic association on estimates of species richness.
