University of Guelph - Dairy Bush - 43 - June 23 2010

The urban environment is expanding at a never before seen rate. Existing natural environments within urban centres, such as forests or woodlots, are exposed to increasing anthropogenic pressures of degradation, fragmentation, biological invasion and destruction. One key to our capacity to understanding these changes will be ongoing monitoring through time. If such monitoring is democratized and publicly available then one may assume that a marginalized environment may become more valued by the human population. On the University of Guelph campus in Ontario, Canada, the “Dairy Bush” is an 8.5 ha woodlot that has been part of the city and the university campus since 1830. The sign outside the Bush reads, "The Dairy Bush is a unique and delicate example of Great Lakes St. Lawrence forest in Southern Ontario, and serves as an outdoor laboratory for University of Guelph students." Between August 2009 and September 2010 I have been visiting the Dairy Bush weekly to document a year in this urban woodlot using GigaPan panoramic images.

This is week 43 and the Doll's Eyes are coming out...I appear to have fixed the exposure problems from last week.
