ccccccccccccccccccccccccccunit was kgf/cm2. The ruler was used to measure the length of the tallest plant in a particular quadrant.
In both Robin Hood Green and Pillow Mounds we laid out an XY grid of 20m2. Within this area we randomly selected two coordinates from a range of 0-20 e.g. (6x, 9y). I walked 9m along the x-axis and my fellow group member walked 9m on the y-axis. We stopped when we corresponded. We then placed our quadrat on the point we were going to work on. The quadrat was used to find how many squares had grass, litter, leaves, moss, exposed soil, etc. We got our information by counting the number of squares which represented 1%.
When we were measuring the soil compaction we used the Penetrometer. We inserted it into the ground 1cm and as it went through, the ring moved along the scale and stopped at a certain point to reveal the compaction of the soil. When all the groups had finished attaining their results, we all compare what we got.
In order to find out what attracts people to Epping Forest and what they do I constructed a questionnaire. Whilst still at Epping Forest I questioned 40 visitors within Pillow Mounds and Robin Hood Green. This enabled me to gain first hand information so results were more reliable. I used my key questions:
Do you visit Pillow Mounds or Robin Hood green the most?
This question tells me which location is visit most and more favored.
What activities do you participate in whilst visiting here?
This question tells me about the type of activities...
