This does not alter the fact that it contains math and calculations which you can easily check. The second is the resulting white paper. The first is more readable, the second more methodological. I am adding these on Aug. 5, 2021, long after I originally concluded that SAR, as normally applied, is flawed.
Additionally, estimates of existing species are wildly over-counted.
