Unformatted text preview: If you have binoculars, bring them (also bird guides).
Each lab section will prepare 3 platforms (1/treatment). Combining the data from the 4 lab sections will
result in the following experimental design: 2 sites; 3 treatments/site; each treatment replicated twice in each
site. This will allow assessing: - variation among sites;
- variation among treatments;
- variation within treatments.
In Downer Woods, spread the worms on the platforms. The worms in each box will go to 1 platform. Spread
them evenly on the platform. Label the platforms for the treatments with a marker, and also write this down
for your records. Leave the worms on the platforms.
Now explore the area near the platforms and the trails in Downer Woods. Make a list of birds and other
potential predators for the worms. Use the bird guide to obtain information on the feeding habits of the birds
