        Measuring Biodiversity: Life in One Cubic Foot | Smithsonian Science How

        Sample the diversity of life on coral reefs in Moorea and Indonesia. Meet Dr. Christopher Meyer, a marine biologist at the National Museum of Natural History. Consider why you would want to catalog all the species in an ecosystem and what it tells you about that ecosystem's resilience to change. Contemplate the importance of monitoring biodiversity in global ecosystems. See how techniques used by Chris can be used by students to measure biodiversity in their own neighborhoods.
