The collected data and measurements were analyzed and interpreted to satisfy of this study. Data Analysis The gathered data treated statistically to interpret and analyze the result. Statistical Tool The average/mean was used to analysis the treated data.
7 𝑥̅ = (𝛴𝑥 𝑖 ) 𝑛 Where: 𝑥̅ = weighted arithmetic mean 𝛴 = summation 𝑥 𝑖 = sum of all species in samples 𝑛 = number of species This study also used Statistical Package for Socio Sciences (SPSS) which is used by researchers to perform the statistical analysis. As the name suggest, SPSS statistical operation. It is also performed for quantitative analysis and used as a complete statistical package that is based on appoint and click interface. This software has been used widely by the researchers.
8 Result and Discussion Table 1. This table showed the measured salinity on pond water on ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary. Location Salinity (ppt) Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Mean Area 1 30 30 30 30 Area 2 30 32 31 31.5 Area 3 33 31 32 32 Area 3 had the highest mean of salinity compare to Area 2 and 3. The measured salinity in Area 1, 2, and 3 has no significant difference, respectively. This showed that the pond water in ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary was considered it as marine water. Table 2. This table showed the measured turbidity, clarity and depth of water on ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary. Location Water-depth (cm) Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Mean Area 1 17 15 17 16.3 Area 2 23 24 27 24.7 Area 3 11 9 10 10 Area 2 had the highest mean of water-depth compare to the Area 1 and 3. The water depth in Area 1, 2 and 3 showed that there was significant difference, respectively. This implied that during the time that the researchers collect data was low tide.
9 Table 3 . This table showed the measured pH on pond water on ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary. Location pH Level Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Mean Area 1 9.4 9.6 9.7 9.6 Area 2 9.4 9.4 9.4 9.4 Area 3 9.4 9.4 9.5 9.4 Area 1 had the highest mean of pH level compare to the Area 2 and 3. The measured data showed that there was no significant difference, respectively. This implied that the pond water in ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary was more basic or alkaline since, it was above neutral (pH level of 7). Table 4. This table showed the measured water density on pond water on ZSCMST Bird Sanctuary. Location Water Density (g/ml) Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Mean Area 1 1.023 1.022 1.022 1.0223 Area 2 1.022 1.023 1.23 1.0226 Area 3 1.023 1.021 1.023 1.0223 Area 2 has the highest mean of water density compare to Area 1 and 3. The collected data showed that there was no significant difference among Area 1, 2, and 3, respectively. This implied that the pond water was denser compare to the pure water (1 gram/milliliter) and more dissolve metal elements.
