Describe the plant life, animal life, and geology of ecosystem in the area in which you live.
I live in Vancouver, Washington
Your best source of information is your own eyesight.
You may find, though, some information in these sites.
Ms. Sue when I click on the link that you gave me it gave me Vancouver, British Canada. I live in Washington not Canada.
Ms. Sue, I am confused on this assignment. The part that I quess that I don't understand is how to describe the plant life, animal life, and geology of the ecosystem in Vancouver, Washington. Can you please help me understand
What kinds of plants do you have in Vancouver? Pine trees? Palm trees? Maple trees? Orchids? Grasses? Cacti?
I'm sure you have many others.
What kinds of animals are there? Elephants? Bears? Deer? Squirrels? Kangaroos? I'm sure you have many others.
What kinds of geology are there? Mountains? Plains? Hills? Buttes? Lowlands?
How would I find these plants, animals, and the geology when I am searching the information
Rayna, you're wasting a lot of time online. You need to take what information you have from the second link Ms. Sue gave you and go outside (tomorrow) and look around.
What kinds of plants do you see?
What kinds of animals do you see?
What kinds of geological formations or land forms do you see?
This is an easy assignment. Go and look. Write down what you see!
Here's some information from DrWLS.
Dr WLS [10:00 PM]: Vancouver WA geology and biosphere is typical of lower Puget Sound and the Willamette Valley of Oregon. You were right in saying the best source is the student's own eyesight.
Dr WLS [10:01 PM]: Lots of rain and trees, in the Columbia River valley.
What is DrWLS? Granted it rains in Washington but i am not going outside to just look for this assignment when it is raining outside and I don't plan on getting sick again. I rather use the internet because the teacher said we can use the internet for this assignment.
Drwls is a highly educated Jiskha tutor who lives about 40 miles from Vancouver.
We've tried to advise you and suggest internet sites to help you. Now you're on your own. We Jiskha tutors have done all we can for you now.
For geology I recommend using
Click the Clark County part of the map.
Your wildife and vegetation is not much different from the rest of the lower Puget Sound area of WA and the Willamette River basin area of Oregon. You will find many descriptions in the various links of
