    1. 1. Community Ecology Lab Species Diversity
    2. 2. Two options for gathering species diversity data: 1. Sample two outdoor communities 2. Sample two indoor simulated communities Procedures for both methods are outlined on Blackboard; select the method most realistic for you.
    3. 3. Construct Species Area Curve Plot cumulative number of species after counting each # species quadrat on the y- axis; number of quadrats sampled on the x-axis.
    4. 4. Sampling ProceduresSelect next quadrat and repeat procedures, adding any new species to data tablePlot number of cumulative species on species area curveContinue sampling quadrats until curve levels off for five consecutive samples
    5. 5. # species
    6. 6. Sampling Procedures (continued) After sampling Community A, travel to Community B and repeat all procedures. Complete the data tables.
    7. 7. Complete calculation, analysis and conclusions See lab on Bb to complete the calculations, analysis and conclusions
