2 August 2018 The Pluck
HI Soraya! I am having fun and learning a TON! I can't wait to share what I have learned with you and the class!!
See you soon! -Ms. Anderson
Is plucking hard? How long does it take?
Hi Sofia! Plucking takes a lot of attention to detail and is pretty hard at points, like when trying to identify if the part is a root or a ribosome. (We will discuss this in class this year!) We just finished the pluck TODAY- it took 8 days to complete 48 quadrats. Some nights we stayed in the lab until 10:30 working!
I will see you soon!!
would you rather live there or tucson.
Good question Rich! Alaska is amazingly beautiful and I am in awe of my surroundings, but I do appreciate the beauty of the Sonoran desert as well.... I think they both are great places to live.
I will see you soon!
#1: is there a certain way you have to place the quadrants???
HI Lucas! Great question! There is a specific way to place the quadrats. Remember the work we did at Agua Caliente Park with the data plots? It is almost the same thing. You have to line up the quadrat to flags that have been placed at specific points. There were 48 sites that were part of the project!
Look forward to seeing you soon!
