Aquatic macroinvertebrates are organisms that are spineless and observable to the human eye; these specific macroinvertebrates live in aquatic environments. Based on the quality of the environment, the diversity of these macroinvertebrates can greatly differ. We are looking to investigate what factors could make a difference in the biodiversity of aquatic macroinvertebrates. For our project we will collect aquatic macroinvertebrates from different two ponds, with these aquatic macroinvertebrates we will observe the diversity of the sample. With this information we will be able to observe our sample and apply it to the ponds each sample was collected from. This data will help us look at the biodiversity of Hecksher pond and Garvies Point, then it will help complete our comparison between the two places. The results of this experiment will aid us in finding what affects biodiversity in different aquatic ecosystems. We predict that there will be more biodiversity in the Hecksher pond loca
