Naming Your Biotic Community

Information about Biotic Community Names

Materials you will need:
  your data from the "Plant Survey" activity

Here is your procedure
You are going to calculate the total area taken up by each species of tree.  If you would rather not do these calculations, but would still like to know which tree is dominant, just send us your list of trees and their circumferences.  We will determine which tree is dominant.  We will then send the results back to you.

When you have done this for each species of tree, compare them.
The data page has an example and a table to help you do these calculations.
