In this study we will examine how elevation gradients influence the abundance of the ponderosa pine species. We hypothesize that the abundance of ponderosa pine increases as elevation increases and predict that we will find differences in the ponderosa pine abundance at different elevations. Methods Study System Bear Peak is a trail located in Boulder Open Space with the lowest elevation of 5,623 feet (1713.89m) and with the highest elevation reaching a peak of 8,453 feet (2576.474m). The Bear Peak Trail is rich in flora and fauna and a great place to explore ponderosa pine trees. This study will compare the diversity of ponderosa pine at low, medium, and high elevations.
