ECO 2010 By: Kyle & JUSTIN. Fox Pond.
When we got to Fox pond there were many different biotic animals. There were animals like crayfish, red spotted newt, frogs, nymphs (green darners, skimmers), fish, and many more. We also saw many Abiotic things like air, sun, dirt, and rocks. We took the pH of the pond and it was 5. The temperature was 80°F.
As we hiked up Rattlesnake Mountain we saw many trees. Some were red oak, sugar maple, hemlock, white pine, red maple, striped maple, witch hazel. When we got to the top it was a beautiful sight, you could see Baker River and many different insects. We found a mud hole so we decided to check the pH and it was 4. The water was very warm, it was 80°F.

When we arrived at Baker River we saw lots of biotic creatures but mostly insects. We also saw minnows in the water but they were too quick and small to catch. The temperature of the water was 78 and the pH was 5. We saw many trees as well. Some of the types of trees we saw were oak, maple, pine, hemlock, and witch hazel.
We journeyed to Walter Newton on Tuesday the 13th. As we wondered up to the waterfall we took the pH and the Temp. The pH was 5 for the pond and 5 for the stream. The temperature was 78 for the pond and 64 for the stream. Some biotic features were fish, frogs, daddy long legs, and a chipmunk. Some abioticfeatures were sun, air, dirt, and rocks.
All of us
We sang some songs on our way to Livermore. It was a blast and was very funny. When we got to Livermore we went down onto the railroad tracks and then went down a dirt path. The sight of the gorge was amazing, and look like a lot of fun to go down on a tube. We took the temperature of pool water and moving water, pool water was 76ºF and the moving water was 79ºF. The pH of Livermore was 5 which is pretty low for water. We didn’t see much biotic features, but some things were trees and water bugs. Some abiotic features were rocks, sun, water, and air.
On the way to the moats there was lots of poison ivy. We also saw lots of biotic animals like a frog we saw in a puddle. When we got to the moats we immediately jumped into the water and when you reach onto the ground u could find muscles. The pH there was 6 and the water temperature was 80. As we walked back we crossed a river and there were so many abioticthings like tires, glass bottles, pipes, rocks, a fishing lure, water, air, and, the sun.Da Moats

A pond is a body of water smaller then a lake.
The difference is that a man-made pond receives biotic organismsand natural ponds start life without any help from humans.
The ponds we visited were Fox Pond, Beaver Pond, and Walter Newton Pond.
Streams are important because not only are they a habitat for fish and other animals but it is also another water source for the land around it.
The streams we explored were Glove Hollow Brook and Rainbow Falls.
Some organisms are Leeches, a Snake, a Catfish, Crayfish, Salt Water Clams, Tree Frog, a Toad, Beavers, Plankton, and batter warts.
A river is a fast flowing stream with a definite course.
Rivers are important because they can help transport material or supplies to humans. They are also another water source and a habitat for fish and other animals.
They are important in the development of civilization because they can produce hydro-power.
We visited the Pemiand the Baker.
Some organisms were, fish, minnows, water, snake, tadpoles, leeches, and crawfish.
A wetland is a lowland area with a lot of moisture.
They are important because they make a good habitat for many animals and organisms.
Pollution affects them because the water is still and it could kill or harm the organisms.
Some organisms are mussels, crawfish, turtles, fish, leeches, frogs, bladder warts, and plankton.
