Transcript of "Forest of Knowledge"

  1. 1. Forest of Knowledge
  2. 2. Mature Forest Healthy trees that have grown to marketable size, suitable for harvest. The trees are at maximum growth and health.
  3. 3. Deciduous Means falling off at maturity- typically used in reference to trees or shrubs that lose their leaves seasonally and to the shedding of other plant structures such as petals after flowering or fruit when ripe.
  4. 4. Riparian Living or located on the bank of a natural watercourse (as a river) or sometimes of a lake or a tidewater.
  5. 5. Simple Leaf <ul><li>                                                                 A leaf not divided into parts. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Compound Leaf <ul><li>When one stem has a bunch of leaflets on it. </li></ul>
  7. 7.          Leaf Bud <ul><li>An undeveloped shoot </li></ul><ul><li>that a leaves grow from </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>A leaf bud is composed of a short stem </li></ul><ul><li>with embryonic leaves. Leaf buds often  </li></ul><ul><li>are less plump and more pointed than </li></ul><ul><li>flower buds. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Petiole~ Botany . The slender stalk by which a leaf is attached to the stem; leafstalk.
  9. 9. Vertebrate~having a spinal column or backbone. Examples: Humans, Cats, Dogs
  10. 10. Invertebrate~ Without a backbone Examples: Jellyfish Star fish Crabs
  11. 11. Species Diversity <ul><li>Shows you the number of species in an area and their relative abundance. </li></ul><ul><li>  D = (n / N)2 </li></ul><ul><li>                                                                 Key </li></ul><ul><li>                                                                 n = # of particular species </li></ul><ul><li>                                                    N = # of all species </li></ul><ul><li>                                                       D = value of diversity </li></ul>
  12. 12. Species richness: The number of species in an environment
  13. 13. Species evenness- How equal the number of animals in a species are compared with other species Ex.) 42 foxes and 1000 dogs are not even, but 42 foxes and 40 dogs are.
  14. 14. One of several diversity indices used to measure diversity in categorical data. It is simply the Information entorpy of the distribution, treating species as symbols and their relative population sizes as the probability. Shannon- Diversity Index
