But are the statistical techniques robust enough to support this assertion?

In addition to the recently published State of Nature report, there is an
interesting paper entitled "Species richness declines and biotic
homogenisation have slowed down for NW-European pollinators and plants" (21
May 2013):

It is rather technical (at least to me), but its conclusions are that things
are getting better: rates of species decline appear to have slowed
considerably due to a variety of positive factors including conservation
efforts.
