you can use quadrats to study the distribution of small organisms that are slow moving or dont move

you can investigate the effect of a factor on the distribution of a species by comparing how common an organism is in two areas

how to do it:

1. place a 1m squared quadrat on the ground at a random point within the first area(use a calculator to generate random numbers for coordinates)

2. count all organisms within the quadrat

3. repeat 1. 2…
