Biodiversity and Population Density Correlations

Hello there Consultants,
:wave: I am doing a comparison between two data sets I have collected from two different habitats... I want to show that biodiversity (the number of types of species) and numbers (Population density) are significantly different in the two habitats.
The data I have is numbers of individuals of each order (similar to species) of insects in each of a large number of samples I have collected from the two habitats. I wonder if you could suggest a statistical method whereby I might prove a significant different in individual numbers and in number of classes (orders) of insects in each habitat?
That would really help me out... Thank you very much, Japo.
