In one of the Immersion articles this word appears. I cannot find any translation for it online or in my little Swedish-English dictionary. Can someone explain what this means?

And google says the English equivalent is "artfattigdomen". Maybe my English is slipping because I don't recognize that word.

I would translate it as Poverty of Species

  • Art = Species
  • Fattig = Poor
  • Fattigdom = Poverty

Ah. Thanks. That makes a lot of sense now.

For the document I went with "lack of species diversity". Since that is common in the US and seemed about the same.

Interesting, I hadn't heard species diversity before. Is this more or less common than biodiversity?

I don't know if it's more or less common. It's my understanding that biodiversity can refer species diversity as well as genetic variations within the species populations. In that particular article they were specifically referring to the lack of species on Iceland so I suppose biodiversity would work but would not be quite as specific.
