An Ecological Sampling Exercise 
Processing & Interpreting Raw Data

The Effect of Management on Bluebell Distribution on a Former Woodland Site

This ecological sampling exercise presents a sample of raw data as well as an activity based on the data. The purpose of the exercise is to give students an opportunity to practice handling data and interpreting sampling results.

The raw data was collected during a practical ecological sampling exercise on the Heathland Restoration Project area, at the Woodland Education Centre, which is in South-west England.
