Schoolyard Invertebrate Survey

Edward I, Jonah R, Emmit B, Teddy J, Ben N

In this project we used 3 different methods to sample invertebrates in the Dowling schoolyard.  We used liquid extraction worm sampling, leaf shaker boxes and a simple digging method in the months of October and November.  We found that many invertebrates make their home in the schoolyard.  The different sampling methods revealed different types of invertebrates.
