Species richness, or the number of species in an area, is one measure of biodiversity. In this science project, you are going to test the hypothesis that communities with more plant species will also have more animal species.

* Identify two very different biological communities that are accessible to you. One of the communities should consist of only one or very few types of plants. Ideally, choose a grass lawn if that is available.
