What the Expert Says:

Do you live close to a coast where you can conduct your study? If so, doing a biodiversity study is always a worthwhile project. For example, along the west coast many shoreline areas have tidal pools in which organisms will collect. They can be classified and counted during low tides. By noting dates, times, species and counts over a month or so a student can graph results and speculate on the health of the local marine ecosystem, and in so doing contribute to what is known about changes in the ocean. We are currently in a La Nina condition which can be noted as well, and the student can look to see what other biodiversity inventories have been done in his or her location previously.
