Seed Dispersal

This topic submitted by Wendi, Leah, Emily and Katie ( at 4:02 pm on 9/10/00. Additions were last made on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Section: Myers

Our group plans on studying seed dispersal from a landscape ecology perspective. For example, what types of trees are found either predominantly on the edge of the woods or more toward the center and why. We also plan on seeing how patch size affects the types and sizes of trees found and how seed dispersal affects these differences in tree types. Another idea regarding seed dispersal is to see if whether or not a stream found near the different size patches has anything to do with the movement and eventual end location for the seed. We have many ideas and will eventually narrow our selection down to one that has positive aspects concerning ease of experimentation and relevant conclusions.
