Students research in depth an ecosystem and its species in order to determine the importance of biodiversity it is broken into multiple parts to help students manage their time.
Maybe, but there are significant outliers most of the deep sea is pretty hard to live in, life is sparse, but near thermal vents biodiversity shoots up to levels like what you might find in a rainforest so there are factors besides depth that are more significant for biodiversity.

In the lab, a research team analyzed the biodiversity of each disc and the water quality samples from each depth the biodiversity measures computed included richness (s), simpson's index (d), simpson's index of diversity (1 - d), simpson's reciprocal index (1/d), shannon-wiener index (h), and evenness (e.
