How does the InVEST model consider the biodiversity index?

InVEST is a model suit that aims to model different ecosystem services based on biophysical, social and socio-economic input parameters. In total, InVEST has 19 individual models that need different input data. For example, the carbon storage module can be modelled based on flora and plant communities.  For the crop pollination module distinct species assemblages and their nesting preferences determine the spatial distribution of pollination potential. This information is often very specific rather than drawing upon a general biodiversity index.
