Species Cards Burning Bush I think I found the burning bush because I measured the bush and it was about 60 inches or 5 feet tall. It will only grow a few more feet. The Burning Bush slightly bends over like a tree. The Burning Bush has a spread of five to seven feet, and our plant was the same. Our plant looked a lot like the Burning Bush, everything was the same as the description on Vital Signs. After we looked at other examples we decided that it was the Burning Bush. The leaf of a Burning Bush is an oval shape with a pointed tip. It has toothed edges and an opposite leaf arrangement. 2017-11-15 bluebananas 0
Species Cards Sea Potato/Oyster Thief It is a very windy, wet day at Kettle Cove. The waves were coming in fast. We are making our way over the field of seaweed and rocks. It smells like seaweed and was cloudy. I hear the waves crashing. The seaweed is wet and slippery. I find it difficult that I keep slipping on the seaweed. I am surprised that the Sea Potato looks like thin paper or a dried out hollow grape. The Sea Potato is very hard to find and it is buried up at the top of the hill in the back of the seaweed pile. It is windy and looks like it is going to rain soon, but doesn’t end up raining too much. 2017-11-06 The Tater Tots 0

Species Cards Identification Field search : We were going outside because our class is trying to record every plant on our campus and writing them all down in our team hallway. Before we went outside we had to find a couple of plants that we would look for when we're outside. When we went outside we walked down the road a little bit and turned left heading into the woods. We searched the woods for about fifteen min and we took pictures, measured and got the longitude and latitude of the plant we selected. I had my friend hold the meter stick while I took the pictures so that they were clearer. 2013-11-06 73ww79 0
Blog entries, Species Cards, Journal articles White Clover 34.8968 N and 42.0978 W in a forest like area with trees, next to a swamp on MMS school grounds. I am happy I found this plant because it's not invasive. I found it hard to find the scientific name for it. I am surprised to see that this plant stands alone, and no other White Clovers were near it. My sampling method was looking around for it. I am looking for White Clover ( Trifolium repens). I found this plant near my study site. The plant was four inches long, and the clover top was 1.6 centimeters wide. 2013-11-05 53cp35 0
Blog entries, Species Cards, Journal articles, Research reports Witch hazel On the campus of our school i think i found witch hazel but i need some help finding out what itt is it but i don't know so if you can please check out this below. On Tuesday October, 15 2013 we went outside and started looking for a new kind of plant on the massabesic campus. Our mission was to find a plant that had not been found before on the campus.I think I found some witch hazel but it's a little short in size but all the other dimensions are correct. The plant has made a great impact on the area around it and most of the plants have died out. 2013-11-05 53dr37 6
