The effective number of species is defined as the number of equally abundant species that produce the same value of a certain diversity index as an observed community (Jost 2006). According to Chao et al. 2014 and Chiu et al. 20 ENS_shannon can be interpreted as the number of common species and ENS_simpson as the number of dominant species in a community.
Named vector with six diversity indices
n_species: Number of species
n_endemics: Number of endemics
shannon: Shannon index index defined as H =  ∑ p_i * log(p_i), where p_i is the relative abundance of species i:
ens_shannon: Effective number of species (ENS) based on the Shannon index exp(H)
simpson: Simpson index index (= probability of interspecific encounter PIE) defined as D = 1  ∑ p_i^2
ens_simpson: Effective number of species (ENS) based on the Simpson index 1/D
