Factors Affecting Invertebrate Communities in Burnt and Unburned Sections of Teide Forest + SPSS (Statistics Project Sample)


We did a research in Teide (Tenerife) which has been affected by fire and now we are to write a report and analyse our findings. This report should include Introduction (Brief and fully referenced, Methods, Results (including figures and tables), Discussion (A concise discussion of the findings in the context of current literature and can use heading Interpretation, fully referenced), Conclusions and References page. I need 14 references in which seven (7) of them should be JOURNAL PAPERS) Bellow is how we did the research: AIM: An investigation into factors affecting invertebrate communities in burnt and unburnt pine forest sites in Teide (Tenerife). METHODS: Random sampling method was used. Four (4) selected sites were chosen and the first area was burnt pine trees, second area was unburnt pine trees, third area was burnt shrubs and the last area was unburnt shrubs. A grid was then used to mark these areas and randomly selected points and chose rocks closest to our points which fit our criteria. Fifteen (15) rocks were selected from each of these four sites. The rocks removed were examined and cratered for invertebrate families and their abundance. Rock depth that is how deep the rock was sitting in the soil was measured including the moisture content, rock size, leaflet cover, and conductivity. Now we are to use SPSS statistics 19 to present our results and discuss our findings. The two test we have been told to use are the T-test and Ordination. Snake- Millipede was the commonly found invertebrates so will like to compare their differences from both the burnt and unburnt site using T-test and also Ordination plot to show the differences in species composition between burnt and unburnt sites. Can also compare the total number of species found on both burnt and unburnt sites. Bellow is the data:


Factors Affecting Invertebrate Communities in Burnt and Unburned Sections of Teide Forest
Forest fires influence the ecosystem of pine forests by reducing the population of organisms. One such forest that has been affected by fire is the Teide national park, which is located in Spain. This paper investigates the factors affecting invertebrates’ communities in burnt and unburnt pine forests by using Teide forest as the population. Statistical tools such as ordination and the T-test are used to make inference about the study population. It is critical that the method used for data collection was systematic random sampling, which divided the study population into various sections. This study concluded that factors that affected the millipede snake species’ population are moisture levels, rock depth, rock length, and leaf litter cover.
