My observation site is a 200m x 200m plot of mixed second-growth coniferous forest located in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) in North Vancouver, BC (UTM: 500467E, 5465040N; Elev:…..
The results from the sampling strategies used in the virtual forest tutorial Haphazard: 2 hours, 4 mins Random: 1, hour, 59 mins Systematic: 1 hour, 48 mins Systematic sampling had…..
The first time I went to the site, I mainly observed and the second time, I started taking samples from one side but it was very time consuming. I realized…..
The field research experience was very unique and different. At first, I didn’t know what I wanted to study and had no idea as to where I begin? However, once…..
First I put all my raw data points in a table as my field journal was quite messy. From there I started making a bar graph and a line graph…..
The main purpose of my study is to determine whether distance and depth of water have an effect on the density of cattails in marshes of BC. The environmental and…..
For my study, I measured the density of cattails in 5 different marshes. I measured the density in 1m2 x1m2 quadrats. For each of the marshes/ponds, I measured from every…..
Create a blog post to discuss the collection of the initial data in Module 3. Did you have any difficulties in implementing your sampling strategy? If yes, what were these…..
