Pollinator's Preferences: A Single Goldenrod or a Bunch of Goldenrod

Malik M, Allisha E, Grace M, Nadia R, Oliver C, Becca L

Our class was wondering if there was a greater number of pollinators on lone goldenrod or goldenrod located in a group.  We used our nature area behind our school to conduct our investigation.  We predicted there would be more pollinators in the goldenrod in a group because pollinators could travel shorter distances between blossoms and obtain more pollen with less effort.
