Match the key terms with the correct defintion:
[blank_start]Species Diversity[blank_end]: the number of different species and the number of individuals of each species within one community.
[blank_start]Genetic Diversity[blank_end]: the variety of genes possessed by individuals that make up any one species.
[blank_start]Ecosystem Diversity[blank_end]: the range of different habitats within a particular area.
Define N and n in the equation for the Species Diversity Index.
The Species Diversity Index value was calculated for Habitats A and B. Habitat A had a value of 5.44 and Habitat B had a value of 1.88.
True or False: Habitat A has a greater species diversity than Habitat B.
What are the impacts of Agriculture on Biodiversity?
Farmers select more productive crops so the gene pool is reduced
Woodland clearance to increase farmland area allows new species to live in the new habitat, increasing the diversity
Pesticides remove unwanted pests, reducing the number of species
Monoculture of crops allows a greater number of different species to live in one area
