Introduction

Our research will be focused on the Oak tree that can be found along the Eaton Canyon trail, where our research will be taking place. Eaton Canyon is located on the windward side of the San Gabriel Mountains in Pasadena California.The Oak tree is from the family Fagaceae and its genus species name is Quercus agrifolia(Oak). The Oak trees’ flowering season at Eaton Canyon is from February through April(Eaton). These native trees are evergreen, which makes them appear live through the year. The presence of Oak tree galls in Oak trees is caused by insect larvae that tunnels inside the twigs. Our research question is to find the distribution of the Oak trees along the Eaton Canyon Trail.

Methods

Our group began at the entrance of Eaton Canyon which is located north of the parking lot from the Eaton Canyon Nature Center. We first began by identifying the Oak trees from other similar trees. We were able to identify them by their leaves and the small acorns they release. We were also able to identify them by the poison oak that was found underneath the Oak trees. Then we used the GPS ( …… ) to mark where the Oak trees are located. We also used a measuring tape to measure the diameter of the trees. We wrote all the data into our journal notebook which we then transferred into a google sheet. With the data we get from the GPS, we will make a map using google sheets to show the distribution.
