  • Outline
  • Outline• Summary of your presentation• Avoid descriptive outline• Informative and concise• Replace text by diagrams, photos, etc.

  • BackgroundInformation
  • Background Info•Context of your study/project• Information that lead to your objectives •Photos (must be referenced) •Point form •Be concise
  • Background Info- Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada- The Oil Sands of Alberta activities affect greatlythe landscape and destroy the wetlands- The Oil Sands of Alberta problematic is to reclaimwetlands lost through bitumen extraction towetlands equivalent to pre-disturbance
  • Background Information http://apolloalliance.org/digest/?m=200811
  • Objectives
  • ObjectivesIs vegetation in created wetland is similar to natural wetlands vegetation ? Personal photos
  • Methodology
  • Methodology- To assess vegetation:• To capture all the vegetation and environmental variables variation, each sampled wetland was visually stratified into three zones: 1) open-water, 2) emergent, and 3) wet-meadow• Crossing perpendicularly each of the three zones, three transects were randomly positioned. Along each transect and in each zone, three one-m2 plots randomly placed were assessed
  • Method Open water zone Emergent zone Wet-meadow zone Transect Quadrat http://sofia.usgs.gov
