I will focus mainly only on subjects closely linked to or related to the topics including, Tourism, recreation, wildlife, and plant life. I will take an insight into how the overhead factors affect Epping forest generically, and what Epping gains and loses out on the topics. In this piece of coursework, related to Epping Forest. I will answer the four following questions: i. What attracts people to Epping Forest ii. What Activities do people do in Epping Forest iii. What evidence do people have on Epping Forest iv. What visitor/ environmental management is in place at Epping Forest This assignment will be based on the questions shown overhead based on tourism and recreation.

10 x 10 equates to 100, and as a result of this we decided to record in percentages, with each individual square equalling one percent. Weakness The method, although very easy to use , currently held some negative points which included the fact that half squares had to be taken into account, and that common species, where the only species to be counted, this excluded parasites and smaller plants from the investigation. Tallest Plant Data To carry out this particular, piece of the assignment, we had to first find out the coordinates of an area, and then meet up in the centre of the points. Once this action had taken place, the overall process of analysing the plot of area that the quadrat was covering began. This analysis included finding out the tallest plant; my group and I found out the tallest plant in both spots by looking through the holes making up the quadrat, and measuring the tallest plant, sticking out, through the gaps. Results; when obtained, where recorded on a sheet of paper, to avoid the experiment, being a waste of time. Justification The factor entitled "Tallest plant " was include in the investigation, for the reason that, I, along with my classmates, could see whether or not data was showing an negative impact, coming from tourism. The taller the plant the less of an impact, tourism is showing, however, the smaller, the plant, currently means the opposite. Strengths This particular process, like many of the others, was very easy to complete, and was pretty accurate overall(accuracy depends on the level of concentration shown by the administrator ) Weakness Natural deterrents such as stinging nettles, bramble (and in my case, spiders) partially disrupted the overall flow of the group because we where unable to reach certain spots. Trampling Scale Data Generally speaking, the process of finding out how badly plants had been trampled upon was very easy because my group and I only needed, to once again use our visual talents. ...read more.

Conclusion

only had more cars in the vicinity because of the location, overall the location is fine, but it carries one negative which comes in the form of a roundabout. In this particular instance, the impacts of tourism and recreation are not minimised or maximised in particular sense; looking at the traffic amounts only gives an insight into the amount of people that come to Epping Forest per year, and where they generally enter the Forest. Public pressure graphs/diagrams A public pressure graph is a diagram that_. Pillow mounds Data taken from the graphs drawn up prior to this investigational based report, indicate that there are numerous positive and negative aspects directly related to this particular plot of land entitled "Pillow mounds" Piece of data suggest that there is significant damage shown to be present, this is shown in a variety of ways which include the fact that there is a lot of litter in the surrounding area, as well as the fact that there is a significant amount of soil erosion and overall exposure, with limited amounts of vegetation. Results from this particular area included: - A pattern is shown to be active in this instance, where the majority of results extracted tend to be more_ rather than_. Robin Hood Green Robin Hood Green when compare to Pillow mounds, displays, a set of contrasting, yet predictable results, which have lead me to the belief that, tourism is a major impact in this particular are named "Robin Hood Green" Damage and positive attributes in the area include: - Results from this particular area include the following: - A pattern is shown to be active in this instance, where the majority of results extracted tend to be more_ rather than_. A Public pressure Graph, is not entirely relevant to Key Question Two, because it only measures....and as a result of this....
