Let's go to the Video Tape!

Using actual data from a deep-sea video survey, high school marine biologists consider the biodiversity, compare species richness between two communities, and learn to calculate the diversity index. The lesson plan is all-inclusive, providing plenty of background information, reference websites, extension ideas, and student handouts. Consider finding a video survey online to show in class prior to this lesson in order to spark interest.
