Species Cards, Research reports Hemerocallis—Daylily We have done a study at Massabesic Middle School, in which we were assigned quadrats, and asked to pick out a plant from our quadrat and identify it, then submit our findings to Vital Signs. I have identified my plant, but I found that the species of my plant (Daylily) was not on a species card, so I thought that it would be appropriate to submit my findings this way. 2011-01-31 6EL14 4
Research reports Running Clubmoss Our class goal is to identify every plant on campus. To do this, we will have to go outside more than once and choose plants that haven't been identified yet. The plant that I decided to identify, which I think is Running Club Moss, was not on Vital Signs, so I had to submit it as a project. 2011-01-31 7RS19 3

Research reports Betula populifolia We went outside on a cold day to try to identify a plant on campus. Our goal for this is to eventually, in a few years, identify all the plants on campus. The dates we went outside were October 24th and November 1st. The temperatures were 15.8 degrees and 9 degrees. The humidity on those dates were 36% and 65%. The wind speed on one day was 0.3 mph. The soil temperature on that same day was 8.4 degrees c. My quadrat was near the road. The quadrat we used was a 5 m by 5 m. We took pictures of our plants and quadrat. Then we downloaded those pictures onto our laptops to try to identify them. 2011-01-18 4RF9 3
