The residual value is calculated by subtracting a predicted value from an actual value and the results may be graphically portrayed. 375 Thus for Asteraceae, with 138 genera, the predicted number of genera sampled would be 52, quite close to the 50 that have actually been collected. 1 with a line representing predicted values calculated from the equation above. 1. This analysis shows clearly that woody plant families in general have had greater numbers of genera sampled than would be predicted by chance and that herbaceous plant families have been undersampled.

30-32 A much smaller number of samples have been collected from Madagascar; yet the familial diversity is nearly as high as Africa and generic diversity is high given the total number of species present. Review of the available treatments from the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores 27 and available monographs indicate that a total of 269 families containing 1519 genera have been recorded for Madagascar. 3% of those present. 9% of the families had all of their genera sampled. It is impossible to identify accurately the precise number of taxa sampled in tropical Africa and Madagascar because of incomplete identification of collections at the species level.
