I always give medals. Why would a diverse population be more resistant to disease, predation, and invasion?

    How do invasive species change the diversity index?

    A diverse population would be more resistent because, the number of species can help with the predators, resistent to desiece because of high tolerance, this diversity helps them out-compete other invasive species.

    Inavasive species invade so in doing so it adds diversity to an ecosystem.

    but why does it add diversity.

    Because it introduces more living species.

    Okay then that is what I will give you. It all depends on the ability of the inavasive species to adopt a new territory. If they adapt well to it then the diversity index species would then decline and the diversity of the inavasive species would increase. Is that better?
