Influence of Seasonal Periodicity on Microorganism Diversity in Freshwater Pond at Dolese Outlet

Patricia Aitson, Katlyn Arnold, Joel Anderson, Parker Acree, Fikirte Erda



                This experiment was designed to identify how microorganism diversity changes over time in a freshwater pond in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Shannon Diversity Index was used to analyze the microorganism abundance and evenness from samples taken on March 12, 26, and April 2. The results supported our hypothesis. This could be due to environmental factors such as rainfall and sunlight. Future areas of research should identify each factor individually in an experimental setting.
