Why do species counts for my umbrella project and its subprojects differ?

Modified on Wed, 06 Dec 2023 at 12:48 PM

Umbrella projects count taxa using a different method than other projects. Umbrella projects count "species", whereas collection and traditional projects count "leaves". You can read more about these two methods here, but in general the "leaves" count will pretty much always result in a higher number.
