     7'''Abstract:''' Biodiversity can be measured on three different scales: genes, organisms and
     8landscapes. Diversity of organisms is the most common measure and often
     9used for biogeographical questions as well as for a variety of conservation
     10applications (e.g. see Penner et al. 2011). Normally a trait off exists between
     11the need for fine grained and the need to cover large areas. We used
     12Environmental Niche Modelling to build a fine grained (30x30 arcseconds ≈
     131km²) map of species richness (≈ alpha diversity) for West African using 158
     14out of the 180 known amphibian species of the region. Inspired by !McKnight et
     15al. (2007) we are currently calculating species turnover (≈ beta diversity
