artifact description
In this exercise, students will identify and observe biotic factors in a riparian ecosystem, which is the green strip of vegetation alongside a waterbody; they will measure the types of vegetation at the water’s edge, the function of plants as ground cover and canopy cover, and observe the wildlife in the area.
