Mountain highs

04oct2019-mountainYear 11 recently went to the Llanos de la Pez in in the mountains to investigate the distribution of grasses and lichen in different habitats. They worked in groups and measured the distribution of these organisms using quadrats. They also used ecological equipment to measure other abiotic factors such as light intensity, angle of the slope and pH of the soil in order to obtain data to help them draw conclusions about the interactions between these organisms and the habitats in which they are found. These investigations also prompted important discussions about the impact of human behaviour, specifically car exhaust fumes, on local habitats. Students worked solidly for two hours and enjoyed spending time in such a beautiful setting.
