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.
