Describe the results of the three sampling strategies you used in the virtual forest tutorial. Area, Simple random: EST: 12 hrs, 48min. %error for density of Eastern Hemlock = 22.06%,…..
The purpose of my study is to investigate the effects of sun exposure and competition on T. latifolia success. The ecological processes my hypothesis touches on are interspecific competition, photosynthesis,…..
This experience was quite challenging for me. Initially I was excited to carry out my own research project, I thought it would be a fun, straight-forward assignment. However, there is a…..
The only real issue that I had during the field research project was finding an environmental gradient worth studying. Most of my observations lacked the expert eye for “funny” trends…..
For my research project, I am examining the abundance and diversity of 5 clam species across a marine intertidal gradient. I collected data along transects which gave me the number…..
After addressing some of the problems I ran into during my initial data collection, my final collection went quite well. Some of the issues I resolved were: -Used a proper…..
Using the Area method, I sampled the Snyder-Middleswarth Natural Area. The two most common tree species were Eastern Hemlock and Sweet Birch, and the two least common were Striped Maple…..
I created two graphs to display my data without any difficulties. One graph shows the relationship between cattail distribution and the percentage of canopy cover, and the other graph shows the relationship…..
1. There is a great variation in the plants that grow along the gradient that that I observed. The difference in plants is due to many factors such as difference…..
For my study, I looked at distribution and abundance of cattail species in a local pond. I divided the pond into 6 sections and chose one site to observe in…..
