Investigating the effect of Trampling
Key StageKey Stage 4
Summary of Investigation
There is enough variation in the distribution of grasses and low-growing plants along the length of Gordon Square to form the basis for an investigation into the effects of trampling. Students sample species frequency using quadrats in two contrasting areas, then use their results to consider the ways in which some plants are adapted to resist trampling.
