Exercise 7 Calculating Diversity Indices and Regression Analysis Post-exercise Assignment Jong Park 1. Graph of the diversity indices for each reach in Strawberry Creek. 2a. In our experiment, The Middle North Fork and Middle South Fork, which are placed around the middle of the Strawberry Creek had the highest Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index values (when values are compared in relation to each fork North and South). The Upper South Fork, which is the highest of our experimented sites, had an average Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index value. The Above Confluence and Lower South Fork, which are the lowest parts of the creek excluding the Below Confluence, had the lowest values. The Below Confluence which is located below the combined streams of North and South Forks had the second highest index values, the first being the Middle North and Middle South Forks. 2b. The middle sections (Middle North and South Forks) of the strawberry creek carry the most diverse ranges of organisms, because the energy input is the highest. The highest section (Upper South Fork)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
