We have been investigating the soil temperature, Soil Ph the number of species and also the soil moisture
The research has been conducted in 2 different ecosystems, grazed land and parkland.
The research was conducted so that we could get a better understanding on how different biotic and abiotic factors affect the ecosystems. And also to increase our ability to see patterns and similarities between different ecosystems but also which factors separates them.
You will now be given a detailed description on how to conduct the research.
The tools you and your fellow comrades will need to succeed is as follows:
1 Soil Moisture sampler.
1 Light meter.
1 Ph meter.
1 Book containing pictures and descriptions about different plants that could be living in the habitats you’re investigating, flora.
When we conducted the experiment we were lucky enough to have 1 device which was able to measure everything except for the number of species. To measure the number of species will you simply enough have need to use your eye and your book to identify them.
The next step will be to need to find a grassland or parkland and then simply place your quadrat anywhere suitable. Then will you use your device(s) to measure what’s listed. When you’re done can you simply use your eyes to count the number of species. Be sure to conduct your measurements within the quadrat. when you’re done then you will write down your numbers in the table, example of a table will be shown later. Repeat the same process 2-3 times, depending on how much you like to avoid bias. Be sure to place the quadrat in different places within the parkland/grassland. When you’re done move to either to the next ecosystem and conduct the same...
