Investigating Biodiversity on different tree species
Key StageKey Stage 4
Summary of Investigation
Gordon and Woburn Squares are home to over 140 trees, consisting of more than 20 different species. The tree species can roughly be divided into native and introduced species. In this investigation, students use sweep netting to sample invertebrate biodiversity in the two types of tree, and use their results to comment on the wider issue of conservation and managing for biodiversity.
