urban ecology
Urban Ecology
  • Urban ecology is the subfield of ecology which deals with the interaction of plants, animals and humans with each other and with their environment in urban or urbanizing settings.
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_ecology
our site
Our Site
  • Our site is located in Brighton at Newton border. It is 38 acres and was developed around 1930.
  • The urban pond is a watering hole for swan, Canada geese, heron, and rabbits. A pleasant walk around two-thirds of the pond takes you through the small park and along Lake Shore Road.
research question
Research Question
  • How does Ph and Dissolved Oxygen vary in areas with low and high vegetation and animals in Chandler’s Pond?
  • Hypothesis: Areas with more animals will have more pH and Dissolved Oxygen and areas with less animals will have less pH and Dissolved Oxygen.
  • Our Variables are the levels of pH and Dissolved Oxygen.
data collection1
Data Collection
  • We collected our data by getting water from Chandler’s Pond and testing it different time with the same test to make sure we had the right result.
  • We collected our data on July 27, 2008 and July 28,2008
  • We used bottles, buckets, nitrogen and Dissolved Oxygen kits .
  • We followed the instructions that were given with the kits.
  • Some recorder data, some ran test
data analysis
Data Analysis
  • We tested the two sites and tried to find a difference in The dissolved oxygen. We Looked at our data from the different sites and realized that there was only a slight difference in the water from each site. The temperature of the water was the same and the Ph of the water was very similar.
results1
Results
  • We saw that the area with low vegetation tested the same both time on two different days areas.
  • The results show that there is no difference in pH and D.O. in areas with low and high vegetation
conclusions
Conclusions
  • We claim that there is no difference in the areas with low and high vegetation and animals. The data we collected proved our claim.
  • We tested on two different days and found the same results pH 7.5 and D.O. 8.
questions for future research
Questions for future Research
  • Would the data we gathered change in the next few years? Why?
  • Would more trees and animals in Chandler’s pond increase the D.O. in the water?
what we learned
What we learned
  • 7.5 for pH is a good level that means the water is not acidic.
  • There are little macros that live in the soil at the bottom of the pond.
  • There are certain species of macros at certain areas of the pond.
