ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study of the Agroforestry Research Trust forest garden and the Schumacher native woodland. It aims to compare the differences and similarities of invertebrate biodiversity within the said forests. Results show that the two sites had significantly different invertebrate taxa composition. The similarity between the two sites is just below 50% and that the two sites support different compositions of invertebrates.
