...tes. In many cases, a chemical analysis is required to distinguish a meteorite from an Earth rock. In their experiments, students will likely discover that good places to retrieve meteorites are surfaces that have no similar rocks, are very flat, have a contrasting background, and do not have thick vegetation.

Lots of meteorites are also found in deserts, especially in the Sahara and in southern Australia, where there are flat areas with few other rocks. NASA EG-1997-08-104-HQ Lesson...

Species diversity is the variety of species on Earth. Ecological diversity is the variety of forests, deserts, grasslands, streams, lakes, oceans, and other biological communities that interact with one another and with their nonliving environments. Biologists estimate that Earth's current biodiversity consists of 40 to 80 million different species, each having variations in its genetic makeup and living in a variety of biologica...
