Using the context of land remediation, this resource describes a series of investigations to measure the distribution of plants and animals, including a range of sampling techniques and the measurement of abiotic factors such as soil conditions, temperature and light intensity. These activities are generally suitable for surveying in the school grounds but they can also be applied to other locations.
The activities described are similar to those undertaken at the start of any remediation process to highlight the appropriate actions that may need to be taken to relocate species prior to a location being disturbed.
Curriculum links include biodiversity, succession, bioremediation, transition of species in changing habitats, sampling techniques such as line transects, distribution, adaptation, food webs and how organisms affect, and are affected by, their environment.
Please note, the original website for The Avenue Education project referenced in the materials is no longer available.
