Copia is a statistical software package for estimating diversity and richness on the basis of abundance data. The package contains several bias-correcting richness estimators, such as the Chao1 and the Jacknife estimator.

Because this package targets so-called “abundance” data from ecology, it has been named using the corresponding Latin term copia. The artwork for the logo has been kindly contributed by Dr. Lauren Fonteyn (Leiden University, NL). The depicted goat is a mythological reference to the cornucopia or “horn of plenty”, the legendary horn of the goat Amaltheia, who fed the infant Zeus with her milk.
