Sites 16 through 30 were placed on a rough grid throughout the burned habitat. Study Sites Survey Results •  Unburned –  10 sites with Solenopsis invicta –  1 site with Pheidole dentata –  4 sites with no ants •  Burned –  10 sites with Solenopsis invicta –  1 site with Pheidole tetra –  4 sites with no ants Rela3ve Abundance Unburned Sites Burned Sites Shannon Diversity Index Colony Popula3on Sizes •  Two Sample t ­test •  t = 1.8181 •  p = 0.043 •  Box Plot Conclusions •  The diversity of each habitat is extremely low, each only containing 2 observed species. •  Even with the same richness, the unburned habitat is more diverse when considering species abundance. •  The colony popula3on sizes are on average significantly larger in the burned habitat....
