Measuring the Tree


I am going to measure the size of various leaves from various trees
with different heights and sizes. I am also going to find out the
circumference of the tree and the length (measurements) of the
branches.

In order to achieve this goal, the use of a Quadrat would be useful.
Throw the Quadrant in three different positions; record what species
of plants and bugs were found in that certified area of the Quadrant;
measure the plants (preferably 10 plants) and count the leaves on each
plant's branch.



Prediction
==========

I predict that the parts of the plants will absorb more sunshine,
leaving a bigger quantity of leaves and a larger surface area of
branches.

Since the leaves would increase, more bugs will be situated on that
same leafs spot mainly because the suns ray of light help produce
photosynthesis.

Apparatus

Thermometer: - Plays an important role in this experiment, because it
justifies the temperature of the environmental area, in this case back
school garden.

Compass: - A special man made device that would show the direction of
trees, pointing in a certain direction.

Quadrat: - Another special equipment used in this experiment, which
helps identify and clarify the sizes of classified trees and grass.

Meter Ruler: - Suggest roughly the sizes of the trees branches and the
measurements of its thickness.



Method
======

In a group of 5, we decided to find a clear spot were the Quadrat
could be thrown, in order to analyse our leaves and plants. After we
threw the Quadrat three times, we managed to identify the individual
plants which consisted of smaller grass and more/less bugs. We then
used the compass to direct us towards a tree in a certain area.

Once we had finished clarifying the types of grass, we then decided to
analyse a small tree. We measured it (branch length) with the meter
ruler and counted the number of leaves. (Results in table beneath).

Essay on The American Chestnut Tree - Uncolonized North America was once inhabited by many organisms that have now become extinct. The extinction of these organisms can be blamed on the over harvesting of valuable resources or the introduction of foreign diseases from importation. One of these extinct organisms was the American chestnut. The American chestnut once inhabited the Eastern portion of North America from Maine to Florida. The great tree was once a dominant species that inhabited the Appalachian Mountains. The tree provided a staple diet to pre-colonized North American inhabitants and the immigrants of Europe....   [tags: monoecious deciduos tree]

Essay on Responsibility of the Artist in Faith in a Tree - Responsibility of the Artist in Faith in a Tree The philosophy found in "Faith in a Tree" deals heavily with responsibility. One of the responsibilities which was explored was the responsibility of the artist. Paley's portrayal of artists in this story is certainly less than flattering. In one of the most thematically important paragraphs, Faith decides, (to summarize a paragraph) "if it's truth and honor you want to refine...let [God] be in charge of beauty....and let man be in charge of Good." (p.89) The comment was given directly after a dialogue in which artists were labeled as speculators; speculators in the sense that they did not "invest" in life, they merely observed....   [tags: Faith in a Tree Essays] 592 words

Essay A Tree Grows in Brooklyn -             A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is an appropriate name for the book. It’s about 7 years of Frances Nolan’s life. The book’s title is highly symbolical and took me several passes through it before I understood it completely. In the beginning of the book the author talks about the “Tree of Heaven”. “No matter where the seed fell, it made a tree which struggled to reach the sky”, is an excerpt from the first page of Book One. Until you finish the book or at least most of it you think the author is talking about a type of tree and the title makes absolutely positively no sense whatsoever because of that....   [tags: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn Essays] 471 words

An Analysis of Frost's Tree at my Window Essay - An Analysis of  Frost's Tree at my Window      "Tree at my Window" was written by Robert Frost, an American poet who was born in 1874 and died in 1963 (DiYanni 624). His poem will be the basis of the discussion of this brief essay. The narrator in this poem appears to be speaking to the "tree at my window"; then, repeating the phrase in reverse order, he calls it the "window tree," as if to emphasize the location and nearness of the tree. Calling the tree a "window tree," might also suggest that this tree is something he sees through, perhaps to some higher truth, to something beyond the mere physical presence of the tree....   [tags: Tree at my Window Essays]

Rhyme, Scheme and Meaning in A Poison Tree Essay - Rhyme, Scheme and Meaning in A Poison Tree In many cases, poems are very abrupt and awkward sounding when read or spoken aloud. A simple solution to end a poem’s awkwardness is a rhyme scheme. Many poems don’t rhyme for reasons of subject matter but to make the poem more interesting and easier to read the poet uses rhyming words. In many cases, poets use end rhyme, which is using words that rhyme in the end of the phrase or sentence of each sentence. “A Poison Tree” by William Blake is a great example of end rhyme used in poetry....   [tags: Poison Tree Essays] 553 words

After counting the number of leaves, we began to witness many bugs,
especially ladybirds on the leaves, so we took that information into
thought.

Analysis: - My Prediction was partly correct because it states the
bigger the sunshine, the bigger the leaves. In reference to a more
sunny area and a shady area, plants always need light for
photosynthesis, so they occur only where there is sufficient light in
the darkness they become etiolated. Different species differ on the
amount pf light they need. For example many daisies like bright
sunlight, whereas many species of Orchids prefer shady places.



Evaluation
==========

Since the theory of LIGHT is correct in this experiment, the numbers
of bugs still have a reason for appearing in certain areas of a garden
and disappearing in certain places. This is because the areas with
shade don't contain enough photosynthesis to keep a plant alive, which
doesn't help a bug, when it needs to feeds on a plant. For example
Bees get nectar and pollen from flowers (have a lot of sun rays) so
the flowers need to be situated in the right area, where there is sun
and need to be flowered regularly. This process is known as the biotic
environment.

Conclusion

As you can see from the Graph (above) the branches length doesn't need
to have a huge amount of leaf dues to its conditions. This proves that
the trees condition doesn't need to have a lot of sun or shade to have
a huge number of leaves.
