1) How does the biodiversity of the two areas compare?
The two areas have different total of individuals. In comparison Sample 1 have the largest
numbers for H and D so it is more diversed than Sample 2.

Yes because Sample 1 has a higher total number of individuals than Sample 2.

## 3) Are there similarities in biodiversity between the two types of ecosystems?

Using the Sorensons Coefficient: 2*7/63+55 =0.12
This means that the closer the value is to 1 the more the communities have in common. In
these sample areas it is 0.12 so there is no overlap or similarity between them.
