IB Environmental Systems in Societies: White Sage (Slavia Apiana) Phenology Monitoring Project

Contact email:

This Project intends to descover an answer to the question:  "How does proximity to large root based trees affect the phenology of the White Sage plant (Salvia Apiana).  Plants are monitored in a remote location at the Claremont Botanic Gardens, a large natural reserve in southern California.  The sample groups are monitored over the course of several months, (from about November to May), and data is recorded fairly often, although weekly monitoring is not always possible as this experiment is run in a public High School setting.
