    Gradient of Species Diversity The latitudinal gradient in species diversity is one of the most striking patterns in the distribution of organisms on the planet. Simply put, the average number of species per unit area increases dramatically the closer the area is to the equator, almost entirely regardless of the type of organism being considered (Pianka, 1994). Researchers investigating the gradient have formulated a wide variety of hypothesis explaining the higher level of species diversity in the

    Background of study Diversity concept can be defined by refers to variety of living organisms in a particular area (Statistica, 2013). Since diversity involves many living organisms and include different species, thus it may be very complex. There are two significant divisions within the scope of diversity which are species diversity and habitat diversity (Mumby, 2001). Both represent structural complexity of environments. In order to reduce complexity of ecological system, ecological diversity concept can

    An Experiment to Investigate Species Diversity at West Runton Beach Aim === For this investigation, I am aiming to investigate the species diversity at West Runton Beach. The aim is to research the distributions of substrates, plant life and other organisms, comparing them with each other and relating it to the tidal zonation. This will hopefully show us how each factor of the environment affects the others. The experiment will be a line transect using a quadrant down to parts of

    Species Diversity and Abundance of Ground Flora in Coppices of Different Ages Introduction: Coppicing is the removal of the canopy layer - such as hazel, ash and lime to nearly ground level. This provides timber but also allows the trees to re-grow with many more shoots instead of just the one trunk. This cycle takes about ten years which gives the ground layer a chance to flourish. Hypotheses:There will be less species diversity and abundance in the old coppice. Explanation:There are

    conflicting interests between ecology and human economic benefit, it has become increasingly important to find solutions for a harmonic balance. It is imperative for people to recognize the impacts of biodiversity loss and increased extinction of many species. These impacts must be understood in order to protect landscapes and the immense biodiversity they contain. Raising environmental consciousness through education and public cooperative efforts, as well as promoting resource conservation and changing

    horses and wheat that we know today were crossbred into current, recognizable states from earlier, wild plants and animals well before history began to be recorded. "Crossbreeding is a relatively slow and clumsy method of 'improving' animal and plant species" *1* compared to modern times, when gene manipulation means tests tubes and petri dishes, not dirt or husbandry. While prohibitively expensive (for the time being) DNA manipulation and fertility techniques will become simpler, cheaper, and more accurate

    Genetic Diversity on Restoration Compilation of all direct and indirect effects on the planet by human activities has become very critical to the restoration of endangered species to their native environment. Efforts around the world are in the works to help preserve many species from disappearing from the face of the earth. In areas where fitness species or population is low, conservation management strategy have been advocated to help avoid extinction. Such case can be seen with the Florida
