  • Our ToolsGPS (Global positioning System)Hula HoopString (for transect)Digital Camera

  • Berry Flats Why we Hiked Berry Flats?To examine plant speciesTo cut down invasive species like Kahili Ginger To learn about Native Plants and animals

  • The HikeWhat We Did on Berry FlatsWe looked for Native Plants and animals We cut down invasive plantsWe learned about the plants and animals

  • GPS? What is that?!A GPS is an electronical device that tracts satellites and will;Tell you where you are And what the elevation is.

  • Heres some pictures!

  • -Transects !-A transect is an area of land that we surveyed.This is how it works: you put a string down and you pick a spot to survey.

  • Even MORE pictures !

  • QuadrantsA Quadrant is a section of land measured by a hula hoop.We looked at the plants inside the quadrant and also looked up into the canopy.

  • Pictures of The CanopyDifferent quadrants had different amounts of canopies.

  • Digital Photography What did we take pictures of with the digital camera???We took pictures of the canopy.We also took pictures of the quadrants and transects.

  • Clip Art Related To The Project

  • Why this information is important1. This information is important because now people will know a lot about Kokee nature and the wildlife. 2. This information is important to us because now my class and I know a lot about Kokee and about the plants and animals. 3. This information is important to scientists because they can learn about the plants and wild life, transects, quadrants.

  • Data collectionWe collected data by taking pictures and writing down what was over a hula hoop that we threw to see which plant was there. We wrote down the plant and what percent of sky there was above the hula hoop, for instance, 73% was trees and 27% was sky.

  • PICTURES, PICTURES, PICTURES!!

  • The Forest!

  • What We LearnedThere are invasive species like banana poka and strawberry guava that we should try to get rid of.There are many native plants like the Ohia Lehua and Koa Tree.We used a hula hoop (quadrant) , a GPS, and some rope to learn about the habitat.

  • What We Learned (continued)We learned to work together.We learned about the plants and animals that live in Kokee.

  • What If?What if we didnt have this information?We wouldnt know anything about the nature in Kokee, so we couldnt help the native plants.What if we didnt pull Kahili Ginger on the trail?It would take over the native plants and they would go extinct.

  • What If (continued)What if forest managers were able to use this information and what would they know?They would know to be more aware of invasive species.What if visitors had this information? They would know not to kill native plants and animals.
