Hypothesis: Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is typically found in medium moisture level ecosystems. Therefore, Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is most likely to be found in the ecotone, and with a slight chance of being in the forest, because those are the two sites with a medium amount of moisture. Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is a plant that is often seen in wetlands. Therefore, it is not typically seen in marshes. By looking at the information gained by the students, it can be hypothesized that the Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea grows well in slightly drained soil, and lives in a habitat that is moderately dry. Therefore, it can be said, that the plant doesn’t need a large amount of water to grow, as it is abundant in

Unformatted text preview: ecotone, and in the field. Prediction: Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is mostly found in the ecotone. It has a medium amount of water level in the soil, so the partial drainage of water at the station wouldnt have a huge effect in the abundance level of the plant. Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is used to slightly damp areas, and as the ecotone is in between the marsh, and the forest, as it would still get water from both. Since the ecotone, where it is seen the most, on average, is not the driest area, it can be said that the amount of plants would decrease, if the water was drained, but it wouldnt have a detrimental effect on the population of Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea present at the station....
