Environmental Systems - Diversity (Help!)

Recommended Posts

I'm doing this lab at the moment based on secondary data.

Basically some teachers sampled a meadow using 5 quadrats (random sampling method). At the base of the meadow (it's formed as a slope), there is a stream. The quadrat closest to the stream was Quadrat 5, and the one at the top of the meadow (the farthest away from the stream) was Quadrat 1, etc.

In the summer, the highest diversity was found in Quadrat 3, and the lowest in Quadrat 4. The next highest diversity was found in Quadrat 2.

In the autumn, the highest diversity was still found in Quadrat 3, and the lowest in Quadrat 2.

Anyone who might know some possible reasons for this change? Please help!
