Most cultural importance indices do not predict species cultural keystone status

Michael Coe
The use of quantitative indices to quantify the importance of a plant species to human societies is widespread. While quantifi- cation may yield support for standardized methodologies and facilitate generalizations, it is important to examine the potential limitations of these indices. Moreover, because these indices are calculated at the species level, failure to control for phylogenetic relatedness in predictive models may yield misleading conclusions. We test if commonly used cultural importance indices predict species cultural...
