  • Symbiotic Relationship Between Clownfish And Mutualism

    All three transects at each site were studied at the same time on one day. The transects were studied to look for visiting pollinators at the flowers during each of the 30 minute periods. There were four 30 minute periods beginning at 0900, 1200, 1500 and 1800. During the start of each period an observer would walk for 2 and half minutes down each transect and recorded any of visitors on the study plants. This process was then repeated five more times (Barthell, 2001, 1872). The same plants used…

  • Analysis Of Lulu Island Marsh

    Lulu Island Marsh is located in the Fraser River Estuary where the Fraser River meets the Strait of Georgia. The approximate length of the area examined on marsh averages at about 330 metres (red line in Figure 1). To cover more ground, the study site was divided into two transects: a southern transect and a northern transect.

  • Bruny Island Topography

    refining to report on the reasoning behind the different trends in the datasets. As Bruny Island experiences (a general) North-Westerly wind direction, it became evident that vegetation and the topography of one sand dune transect would impose an effect on the recorded wind speed (or velocity) readings. The results associated with the data collected has confirmed this theory. Unfortunately, there is many limitations of the dataset that hindered on the overall quality of the results; especially…

  • Essay On Acadian Flycatcher

    mature stands of deciduous trees with bordering waterways varying in size. The microsite spatial scale was defined as an individual nest or territory, the local stand scale as a surrounding 3ha forest patch and landscape scale as a 1km-radius circle originating at the center of each study site. On the landscape scale, researchers measured percent urban and agricultural land cover and digital photos to calculate an average width of each forest. To estimate flycatcher abundance they used 250m long…
