Biodiversity





Steve and the Kinnikinick Group did this experiment on biodiversity. This experiment is where we took these squares of piping that we put on the ground to see how many different types of plants there were in the square in no canopy, 50-50 canopy, and full canopy. The experiment turned out that 50-50 was the best because it had rain, sun, it never got too wet, and it never got too dry. I predicted that no canopy would have the most diversity of plants but it was the 50-50 canopy! This was the most fun experiment we did.

I would have predicted the same as you but now that I think about it 50-50 canopy makes the most sense.

When Room 9 was at Mountain School I was with the Flying Squirrels for the Biodiversity lesson. We did a different test. We looked at the number of different plants in wet soil, medium wet soil, and dry soil.

Jacob,
Scientists are still studying biodiverity and how it impacts ecosystems. Check out this article for the latest on biodiversity.

Oh, that Science Daily link should have a .htm at the end of the address to work properly. For some reason I can't get it to stay attached. It is worth checking into though!
