Just a note
Although we have only shown the distribution for However, where i is the number of individuals in a species, i must be discrete. Fairly obviously, if we add up the height of each bar in the first graph, their sum is one. So if your survey found s species, and you want to approximate the number of species in each bar, α should be The second graph shows several forms of this distribution using frequency polygons.
