Local Biodiversity Intactness Index

Natural History Museum

The Local Biodiversity index provides estimates of human impacts on the intactness of local biodiversity worldwide, and how this may change over time. Because LBII relates to site-level biodiversity, it can be averaged and reported for any larger spatial scale (e.g., countries, biodiversity hotspots or biomes as well as globally) without additional assumptions.
