each type of plant and stick them on your record sheet. If you do not have a permit, do a drawing of leaves / flowers to represent each of the species you observed.
Observe and count the number of different animal species observed in your quadrat. Record this on your group’s Fieldwork Record Sheet. Also record any animal species not found within your quadrat, but observed within your habitat type (invasive alien or indigenous vegetation).
Combine all the data from the different groups onto a class chart and copy this information onto your individual worksheet (Analysis of Fieldwork Observations: Questions 1, 4, 5 & 8).
Learning Activity 4: Promote Biodiversity!
Do your bit for biodiversity!
Before you leave the field work site, divide into teams and have a competition to
see who can weed or chop down the largest pile of invasive alien plants in a given time.
Groups that remove or trample indigenous plants will be disqualified, so make sure
you can identify the invasive alien plants.
Assessment tasks and tools
Have a prize ready for the group that removes the largest pile of invasive alien plants.
