Field Research

Some science is best carried out in nature. Studies where you need to identify all the different plant species in a habitat, count the number of pollinators that come and go from a certain kind of plant, or track changes in the color of autumn leaves might require outdoor trips to an interesting site. Some studies might involve data collection in your own back yard, school garden, or neighborhood park. Other studies may involve a single trip to collect seed or plant samples for more careful work in the lab.
