Pond Ecosystem Investigation Lab report By: Harshal Buradkar 9 grade Introduction A pond ecosystem consists of abiotic: light intensity of the water, depth of the water, and biotic: fish, plants, bacteria, algae, insects and etc. It also contains water and plants which is the most important part of the pond. Ponds are mostly shallow with the depth of 12-15 feet in which the sun rays can touch the bottom of the pond so that plants can grow. My aim is to find out how the plant cover affect the biodiversity of animal life in the pond. Experimental question How does the plant cover affect the biodiversity of animal life in the pond? Hypothesis Claim:- Most animals get food from plants around them. Some animals stay under plant cover because…show more content…
What to do First measure the height of the water by using a ruler and note it down somewhere and while you're at that take the light intensity of the water. Then take some water from the pond with your jug so that the plant animals don’t die and pour it into the bucket. Then you put the net into the very top of the water and move it back and forward 3 times and then take the net out of the water and put it in the bucket and tap the net a few times so that the animals fall into the bucket. Now dip the net back into the pond but this time in the middle of the pond. And do the same procedure from step 3. Do the same procedure again from step 3 but this time putting the net more closer to the ground but not touching the ground. Now after you are done with steps from 3 to 5 pour the bucket water into the tray and examine the water to find different types of species of animals in the water. Use the spoon to scoop up the species and put it in the microscope to get a better view of the species and try to identify the specimen/species of
