120716 - Arctic Ecology - Churchill Manitoba - Ramsay Creek - Cassie

Ramsay Creek – July 16, 2012
GPS: 58.73064, -93.78055
Cassie Russell

Weather conditions: 12 degrees, very cloudy, windy; roughly 20 km/h winds

This is my boreal site for my study and a look at the varying vegetation in the area. I net swept through all visible vegetation, as well as some further from sight. As well as doing a general net sweep, with the spruce trees I also searched for individual webs to find the builder to add to my data. Any immature spruce that were shorter then 5 feet were included in the medium height category and those shorter then 2 feet were considered low. Some of the low level vegetation included soap berry, blueberry, sweet gale and labrador tea. Medium vegetation included the various types of willows as well as scrub birch and one tamarack tree. On this sampling day, the greatest abundance of spiders was caught in the medium range of vegetation, that being from 2 to 5 feet tall.
