Biodiversity is the degree of variation of life. Environments around the planet have a variety of biodiversity, and we are fortunate to live in a region that is historically very ecologically rich. The maintaining of biodiversity is essential to the survival of the ecosystem. Changes to a single part of the environment - either the biotic or abiotic factors - can cause larger changes throughout the entire ecosystem. In this unit we will learn how to sample habitats in order to examine the effects of non-native invasive species in our local habitats.
