a CV(RMSE) of estimated M when M0=300, b CV(RMSE) of estimated M when M0=10000, c CV(RMSE) of estimated L when M0=300 and d CV(RMSE) of estimated L when M0=10000: of spectra in Simulation Scenario 2 categorized under different values of v (v{0.0001,0.0005,0.001,0.005,0.01,0.05,0.1}). CV(RMSE) = Coefficient of Variation of the Root Mean Squared Error, M0 = simulated true richness, M = estimated richness and L = estimated average genome length. All 140 spectra used here were derived from populations simulated using a genome length distribution of \(\mathcal {N}(L_{0},(L_{0}.v)^{2})\) and L0=50 kbp. ENVirT-FL = ENVirT algorithm given a fixed value for L. Only the power-law distribution was considered in all three methods. Values summarized in the figure are given in Table S1 of Additional file 1)
