Introduction and Objectives

Today we observed samples of organisms from the Volvocine Line. This included Chlamydomonas, Gonium, and Volvox. These organisms were observed to prepare us for the types of organisms we will find in our transect. We observed transect 2, an environment located on the campus of Wesley Theological Seminary. By studying a transect, we are able to make observations about the characteristics of our environmental niche so that we can later determine what types of organisms inhabit the area.

The transect is a wooded area outside the campus of American University. It is approximately 25x25 feet in size. Below is a list of both abiotic and biotic characteristics of the area.

Biotic (living): 3 coniferous trees and 3 deciduous trees. Ground cover includes grass, pine needles, ferns, ivies, and weeds. Animals include gnats and mosquitos.

Abiotic (not living): there are no abiotic characteristics in this transect.
