Introduction about my site and ecosystemMY SITE
ECOSYSTEMAn ecosystem is a community of living organisms in conjunction with the nonlivingcomponents interacting as a system. There are many examples of ecosystems –a pond, a forest, an estuary, a grassland.
RIVER AT MY SITEThe depth of the river is about 15cm to 20cm and the soil type is small particlerough sandy. The water is clear at my site, so I can see the sand clearly. I hadtried to hold the sand with my hand and it feel rough. I also can found someshell and small tree brunch in the river. After that, I collect some soil assample.
VIEW OF THE RIVERSIDEThere are many roots at the riverside. I found out that the soil type at here ismore smooth if compare with the soil in the center of river. This place alsobecome the frog’s habitat. In addition, there are some garbage thrown atthere. This action will affect and pollute the site if no coercion.Garbage
RUBBER TREE TRUNKThe tree at my site is rubber tree. It is because I found some marks left byknife-cut on the trunk which show in the small picture. The knife-cut is use tocollect the rubber. Furthermore, the touch of the skin is rough and there aresome white spot on it surface.
BOTTOM OF THE RUBBER TREE ( DRAGON SCALE )At the bottom of the rubber tree, we found some plant which namedDragon Scale. I think it might be some cling plant.
ROOT OF THE RUBBER TREEThe root is growing in the river, we can found some guppy fish in betweenthe roots and the small picture in the zoom-in of the root. Since the guppyfish is too deep inside the river and root so I tried but failed to capture andcatch it.
ANOTHER PLANT AT MY SITE ( DOG TAIL GRASS )I found this grass which named dog tail grass beside the rubber tree. Itried to draw a texture of it but failed so I collect one of it to become mysample (souvenir) in this journey.
SKETCHING OF MY SITEThere are some Guppy Fishin between the roots.These two trees are rubber treesince the trunk got some marksleft by knife-cut and had beencut to get the rubber.
IMPORTANT POINTS AT SITE There are two tall rubber tree which be mymain role at my site. In between the roots of rubber tree, there aresome guppy fish inside. On the rubber tree trunk got mark left byknife-cut which prove me it is a rubber treeand some cling plant which is dragon scale. There are some dog tail grass beside therubber tree.
Butterfly & BambooMY CHOSEN INSECT, PLANT AND FIVE SENSES
SEEOn my journey back to my site, I saw a bird nest on the top of the tallest tree.It was very tall and make my zoom in picture as shown in the small picturelook blur. However, the bird nest is really big, I think inside there might have abig family of bird.
HEARI heard some sound like cricket and I found out the sound are from thegrasses inside the picture. I listen to it and I think this might be thesound of nature.
SMELLWhen I’m walking around with my group mate to find our site. I saw aaboriginal make a small “campfire” beside the river and it smell likesmoke. But that is a method to help them drive away mosquitoes whilefishing.
TASTEThis is the water at riverside. I innervate to try it but it was tasteless.
FEELThis is the view at the end part of the river. Some birds are flying in thesky and I feel calm and relax at here. Actually, people who stay in thecity should take their time to go somewhere can relax and calmthemselves. This can help to release their stress.
UNKNOWN ROCKIt look like an living fossil when I first saw it beside the road. I amguessing whether it was an egg of dinosaur.
UNKNOWN FOOTSTEPHere might have a spared from war before I came. By the way, there isa big footstep which shown in the zoom-in small picture.
UNKNOWN MUSHROOMOh! I found this near the pond beside the dining hall and it lookinteresting though I’m not sure what it is. You can see its size which Ihad used the pencil to measure it.
