Trip to Totara Park- Comparing Sites

In mid term 2 we went to Totara Park to compare our stream.  We measured the things like the clarity and it was cleaner than our stream but they had scummy film on the top of the water which we had not seen at our stream. We discovered some micro-invertabrates there but they were mostly the same as the micro-invertabrates we found at our stream. The environment was different because they had more shade from trees, these trees were actually native to NZ.  The temperature felt cooler but we don't have many trees at our stream. At the end of the trip both streams were the same in invertebrates. (R.K.)
