Introduction

Aim: To consider the effects trampling has on or near the paths. This aim means that I am going to find out whether people are trampling on the plants or if they are sticking to the footpaths. I am also going to find out the effects for the trampling. We chose to do these paths because Method: Method for vegetation cover: For the vegetation cover survey we had to find out how much vegetation their was across the path. This was done by placing a metric chain across the path to see how much vegetation is on the ground. We worked it out using the metric chain (shown in figure 2) because each different color equals 0.5 of a meter so if there is a lot of vegetation in 0.5 of a meter it is likely to equal 100%, if there is a little vegetation it could approximately equal 5%. This is how we recorded our results: % vegetation cover: 100% 96% 100% 100% 100% 100% 72% 0% 0% 0% 0% 10% 100% 70% 20% 68% 70% 70% 75% Method for penetrability: For the penetrability test we used a knitting needle and a ruler. ...read more.

Conclusion

As I have already explained earlier on that the Western side is woodland so people will not be walking on it as much as the Eastern side of the path as this side is just open ground with a small fun area were you are able to build your own wall. Analysis for height of vegetation: I have found out that at Loughrigg Terrace the Western side has the highest vegetation at 23cm tall. The overall tallest vegetation is at the Eastern side of the path. At Brockhole the highest vegetation is on the Western side of the path. It is 24cm tall. Between Loughrigg Terrace and Brockhole, Brockhole has the highest vegetation. This is because people might not want to walk as low down as Brockhole and their may be sheep or any other kind of cattle to eat this vegetation and the national park cannot afford to hire a gardener to go higher up in the mountains to cut the vegetation in Loughrigg Terrace. ...read more.

The pantometer could have been slightly un-accurate at times, for example, if the two legs were not 90 degrees, but it gave me some good results.
