    About This Project

    Geothermal stations cause emissions of pollutants into the environment and can cause damage to living organisms. We believe that spider communities can be used to measure the damage of pollutants in these areas. We hypothesize that the diversity and abundance of spiders near geothermal plants is less diverse and less abundant when compared to the spider diversity and abundance at non-exploited geothermal potential sites.
