The use of species accumulation functions for the prediction of species richness [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
Develops a stochastic theory of the accumulation of new species in faunistic or floristic inventories. Differential equations for the expected list size and its variance as a function of the time spent collecting are presented. Particular cases correspond to different models of how the probability of adding a new species changes with time, size of the list, complexity of the area sampled, etc. Examples using field data from butterflies and mammals are discussed. The equations relating sampling effort with size of the list may be useful for conservation purposes because they should lend formality to comparisons among lists and because they may have predictive power by extrapolating the asymptotic size of the lists. -from Authors
