In this inquiry lab students explore the biodiversity that exists in different soil samples. First, a soil sample is collected and then placed in a Berlese–Tullgren apparatus to extract organisms from the sample. After a few days, students examine the extracted organisms under magnification. After each group identifies the various types of organisms in their sample, students compare the biodiversity and population density among different collected soil samples.
