How (and why) do we count living things?
How many species of beetles and trees are in the Amazon rainforest? And why should we care? In this webinar, entomologist C. J. Geraci and colleague Michael Biondi explain the importance of this information and demonstrate a new way of precisely measuring biodiversity — a web-based application for mapping the distribution of beetles and canopy trees in two rainforest plots. They then show how to use basic spatial statistics to examine distribution patterns of species.
