Variable Exposure of Leaves under Sun and Shade 2
We tested two different populations of leaves from the oak tree. We measured the leaf area and perimeter of shaded leaves and sun-exposed leaves from a number of samples from the same tree. We found that there were a number key differences between the two groups with shaded leaves being larger than the leaves exposed to sun. The leaves also appeared bigger. Statistics were performed and found that there was statistically significant variance between the two groups. The results are discussed in terms of how Continue reading...
