This kit provides 3 different labs to demonstrate methods to collect and evaluate invertebrate diversity. Students collect soil samples and use Berlese funnels to isolate the invertebrates, evaluate the use of other insect traps, and test baits as a way to collect and observe insects. Students then quantify biodiversity using 3 indices: species richness, Shannon-Wiener, and Simpson's. Designed for 32 students working in groups of 4.
