2-Estimated population: 205 per acre
Dispersal Pattern: 1/20?
- Is native biennial
- Can grow over 3 feet tall
- Can grow in meadows, roadsides
- Yellow, large, wildflower
4-Our plant's mircoclimate was composed of other grasses and generally rocky soil.
5-We found that the plant liked moist soil and undisturbed areas, and other things we based on our observations.
6-We said if the soil is disturbed and left alone then the black eyed Susan's can grow again.
7-We checked to see where and when the last construction was going on around our plants.
8-Results were largely inconclusive. There was no particular set of soil conditions that encouraged the growth of the plant.
9-Problems that could have led to inconclusive results include: testing surface-level soil that was not at root-level, not gathering enough trials, and not having a consistent and accurate way of testing for soil moisture.
To solve these problems in future studies, we should: collect soil samples from deeper inside the ground, gathering soil from more trials, figuring out a way to measure the exact moisture content in soil.
