How does the distribution of Plantago maior varies in Sowinski Park and Bielanski Forest? Did the specialization occur?
Each plant has its individual factors affecting distribution. For instance, Plantago maior grows in compacted soils, usually on road sides or near pathways, it often grows on lawns as a weed. Sometimes when two populations of the same specie are isolated from each other and grow in different environments, the process of speciation can occur, that is formation of new specie because of new conditions of environment or isolation.
In this field laboratory two populations of Plantago maior will be compared. One derives from Sowinski Park and the second from Bielanski Forest. These two sites were chosen because of many differences between them. These are as follows:
It is a park
It is a forest
Surface area: 8.3ha2
Surface area: 130ha2
Created artificially by man
Located in the city center
Located further from the city center, near the suburbs
