Random sampling with quadrats
Describe how to collect data on where we find living organisms by using random sampling with quadrats.
• Throw quadrat randomly.
• Count number of organisms in the quadrat.
• Repeat a large number of times to make the results valid.
Sampling along a transect
Describe how to collect data on where we find living organisms by sampling along a transect.
• We use this to see how numbers of organisms change as we move across a habitat.
• A transect is a line such as a tape measure or piece .
• We use a quadrat to count the organisms at intervals on the transect.
Explain why sampling techniques are useful.
Describe different methods of collecting organisms.
Pooters, Pitfall Traps, Sweep Nets and Pond Nets
