In the first week of this section, we took early-morning trips to Boiler Bay and Strawberry Hill for some fieldwork.

Ryan gives a bold(?) smile showing some satisfaction on his great work of Transect-Quadrat, which gives a measurement of abundance and density of entities such as physical objects and any organisms in the quadrat.
In Strawberry Hill, Carmen and Allison working on Tidepool Diversity and Belt Transects. The tidepool diversity gives a diversity (presence / absence) of any organisms in the tidepool. The belt transects gives the number of large, mobile inverts lying within the defined area with 10 m of length and 2 m of width.
Kevin and Katlyn work intently on predator diets (seastars, in their case), measuring both predator and prey size.
