  1. 1. Take off for exploration Sandipan Dhar sandipandhar@gmail.com
  2. 2. Exploring trees•Observation and documentationdifferent types
  3. 3. Collect some documents• Dry leaf,• Leaf print,• Seeds,• Dry flowers, etc.
  4. 4. Documentation of diversity of flower and their role/uses.Important information to be collected•Name,•Season of flowering,•Association with animal life,•Human uses,•Assess the environmental and human benefit,•Assess whether any threat is there,etc.Tips for experiment•Try to extracts colour or colouring agents from thecolourful flowers by crushing,•Test the permanency of the colour in acid and basic,•Dye cotton thread or other items by it; observe thepermanency,•Assess if there is any potentiality among theexperimented flowers,•Try to assess the economics involved in it.
  5. 5. Take measurement• Total height of the tree,• Height from where branching starts,• Canopy coverage,• Garth,• Root areas at surface level,• Prepare a tree map,• Prepare album.
  6. 6. Observation and documentation birds, insects, reptiles etcwhat, where and How• Physical structure, size, colour,• Habitat,• Food,• Seasonality if any,• Common/rare
  7. 7. Explore rocks, land and soilRocks:• Observe : colour, shape, hardness,• Identify: location, layers ( if any),• Measure: true dip and apparent dip,• Note : associated features.
  8. 8. Observation and experimentation of soil
  9. 9. Use tripod lance/ magnifying glass ormicroscope observation
  10. 10. Observe solubility and colour variation .Try to identify the reasons for variation
  11. 11. Observe rate of permeability
  12. 12. Used feel method to identify thetextural composition.
  13. 13. Prepare litmus paper to varify soil chemical reaction
  14. 14. Observation of decaying processes and pattern createdby organisms help to understand characteristics of soil
  15. 15. Observe pattern created by different organism
  16. 16. water related observation• Physical characteristics Colour, Odor, Test, Turbidity, Temperature,• Chemical: pH• Biological
  17. 17. Observation of Air • Wind • Temperature • Intensity of solar radiation • Dust and other solid particle in air • Humidity • Cloud
