We studied impact of ecological realism upon relation between species richness and community variables in three experimental setting increasingly exposed to external forces. The results showed species stability in natural, while moderate deviation in laboratory and minimum in temporary resources. The result also showed that species diversity is less due to both natural and environmental forcing.
