Investigating abundance and distribution of organisms

When scientists are considering the ecology of an organism, they will measure both the abundance distribution of organisms.

The abundancy of an organism refers to the relative representation of a species in a particular area. It’s the number of organisms relative to the number of other organisms found in the environment.

To measure the abundancy and distribution of organisms scientists use a quadrat. It’s used to sample an area where plants and animals don’t move much, it’s in square form and uses a percentage cover.
