Blog Post 8 : Tables and Graphs

The tables shown in the field data section show the data collected on the population of the target species by quadrant method. The tables contain the details of the field study site as well as the population of each species as recorded from each quadrant for all the study sites. The two graphs show the analyzed data on population and the distribution of the population for the target species. Graph 1 shows the population of each species in every study site in percentage form. Additionally, the figures show the estimated population in the entire habitat. Graph 2 shows an analysis of the population in comparison to the altitude of each selected study site.

According to graph 2, population decreases with increase in altitude. Various reasons are attributed to the occurrence including deforestation and erosion. However, the major cause of the decrease in the population size is global warming and climate change. The effects of global warming affect the mountain regions as shown by the graph that the higher we go, the less the species population. Extinction, migration and massive death of both animal and plant species is a major impact of global climate change. Therefore, strategic response to global warming is necessary to ensure conservation of biodiversity in the mountain regions.
