The string has also been made sure that it is taut. . The biotic factors of the site is observed, such as whether the area is located in full sun or shade, or whether the soil is moist or dry. 4. An the square of 10 m, measure tapes are put on the ground at right-angles to each other. A pair of random numbers(any number from 1 to 1 0) within the sampling area is used to collect data. The two numbers are used as coordinates to locate a quadrant frame within the area.
The first random number gives the position on the first tape while the second number gives the position on the second tape. 5. The species to study is determine ( Mimosa Podia SP. . 6. The presence of the X species (Mimosa Podia SP. ) is observed in the quadrant frame. 7. Steps 4 to 6 are repeated by observing the presence of X species (Mimosa Podia SP. ) in a quadrant frame by picking another 9 random coordinates within the same study area.
8. The number of quadrant where X species (Mimosa Podia SP. Is present or absent from the total of 10 quadrant is recorded. 9. Step 1 to 8 is repeated at a different location of the study site but still using the same random number of coordinate.
