Room 18 Inquiry Learning

  1. 1. Room 18 <br />Inquiry Learning<br />
  2. 2. Our term topic is ‘Changes’, we have been investigating flax and bamboo in more detail. As part of our research we have looked at how bamboo's root structure helps to prevent erosion. We were investigating the effect of water on sand and so the effect of erosion on soil if there are no roots to hold the ground in place.<br />Room 18<br />

  18. 18. Bamboo is ideal to help control soil erosion<br />Running bamboo has a net like root system that creates an effective mechanism for watershed protection. It works to stitch the soil together along fragile riverbanks, deforested areas and in places prone to earthquakes and mudslides. Studies have shown that because of this wide-spreading root system along with the unique shape of the bamboo leaf create a stem flow rate of 25% which means that bamboo greatly reduces rain run-off, prevents massive soil erosion and keeps up to twice as much water in a watershed. What makes bamboo even far more ideal for use in soil erosion is that it's hearty enough to flourish in areas where poor farming practices and overgrazing have damaged the soil.<br />
