Biodiversity Challenge Results For this biodiversity challenge lab, my group decided that we thought there would be the most diverse amount of species underneath a log because it is dark and moist there. Around our sample area was a lot of dead leave, twigs, dirt, and soil. There was even some saw dust looking litter. The soil we collected was dark and cold because no sunlight could get to it underneath the log. Underneath the log that we sampled we received a species richness of four. We only had one of each species though. Our group got one Symphlan, one Hymenopetra, one Annelida, and one Aranea. You can also, see these results on chart number one. Although our biodiversity was one of the highest in the class, we were not the winners. The other groups in the class had different biodiversities then our group. As seen in chart number two, that group had a species richness of five. This particular group also had multiple morphotypes within their species richness. Chart number three shows the next group, who had a species richness of four. They also had multiple morphotypes within their species richness. The fourth chart shows the lowest number of species richness, which ends up being three, with only one of each morphotype as well. Charts one through four are used to help determine the species richness, the diversity measure, and the diversity index; these can all be found at the very bottom of the charts. The very last chart, chart number five, shows all of the class’s species richness which was
