Directions for field exercise reports
The object of our field trips is to try and illustrate how basic design decisions affect the local ecology of a site (site being defined broadly from small to regional). Therefore, the object of the reports you will write is to display your understanding of the issues that we discussed, both from a design and an ecological perspective.
For each paper you should:
1. Describe where we went and the design issue that we discussed (there may be more than one design issue-choose only one).
2. Discuss the ecological implications of the design as it was implemented.
3. Suggest at least one change (if not more) you would make to improve that design from a purely ecological standpoint.
