I believe c is the number of species in a habitat of 1 area units, not the smallest measured area, as the article says. For example, the smallest measured habitat may be 4 hectares but the c constant would then indicate the number of species in a habitat of 1 hectar. A note could also be added that c is dependent on the unit of area measurements. (talk) 11:55, 1 February 2012 (UTC) Jens Åström

Thanks for pointing that out. You know, you can be bold and make appropriate changes to articles yourself. --Epipelagic (talk) 14:17, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
