In 1972 pollution decreased and by 1973 diversity had increased, and the ABC plots again indicated the unpolluted condition. Thus, the ABC plots provide a good snapshot of the pollution status of the benthic community in any one year, without reference to the historical comparative data which would be Very often k-dominance curves approach a cumulative frequency of 100% for a large part of their length, and in highly dominated assemblages this may be after the first two or three top-ranked species.

Such relations obtained in island biogeography are true for any phenomenon. If these relations are nonequilibrium, members with order >1 are included into rank distributions. These forms of distributions are typical in nature. If a system is nonstationary, Kulback’s entropy is a measure of nonstationarity. Under the same conditions, entropy of the nonstationary system is less than entropy nonequilibrium one, and the entropy of the nonequilibrium system is less than that of equilibrium one. According to the model, diversity (entropy) of a system is the function of power or diversity of the environment and evolutionary parameters.
