Project/Activity Infomation
Dates of use: 2022-09-18 to 2022-10-20
Frequency: Just twice or three times
Time of day: Afternoon
Areas to be used: western CSS, central CSS, eastern CSS, oak forest along drive, corner, north field, south field, lower neck, central neck, upper neck
Facilities or equipment needed: N/A
Plant or animal species to be studied: NO
Will any plants or animals be collected? NO
Will any vertebrate animals be collected or manipulated? NO
Will flags or markings be used? I plan to set out 6 flags for each of the 6 groups for the soil science lab.

Description of project/event:

I plan to go out this weekend (9/18) with Nikhil to find 24 sample plants for the soil science lab. I hope that I can find 6 clusters where each cluster has the 4 focal species (Artcal, Mallau, Samnig, and Salapi). At each cluster, I plan to put down a small metal stake with a flag. That way, the students can more easily generate the soil science data and I have assurances (by requiring them to return with the flag in hand) that they actually sampled different locations and sampled the correct species. On a second occasion, I and/or Elena and/or Ben will head to the Bernard Field Station to set out 10-14 AudioMoths at locations that I have randomly generated in QGIS. We will keep the AudioMoths running from now through November so that the EA 30 students have multiple weeks of acoustic data to analyze. My previous course request mentions the dates when I will bring my class to take back these units to Seaver South.

On the first day the students will visit the BFS with me to learn about local ecology and generate ideas for data collection. They may do some non-destructive sampling, such as measuring cover with quadrats. On the second date the students will collect data again. I can submit their exact proposed methods when the time comes if that is helpful, but the only invasive/destructive method that might be used is thatch collection.

Description of project/event:

Lab sections tour the BFS with their instructor during lab hours week of Sep 12. Then, up to 12 student groups independently visit during the daytime for about 1 hour on any day before Sep 30, finding a spot of interest, and sitting and observing while noting their ecological observations and taking pictures. At least one week later, each group returns to visit during the daytime for about 1 hour on any day before Oct 16, finding a new spot or returning to the previous spot, to conduct similar observations and brainstorm research questions and hypotheses. During each visit, students will chose a spot not actively being used for research. Student groups will then meet with the instructor and design an experiment based on their observations; the experiment may or may not be performed. For any experiments that will be performed, a separate use request will be submitted if necessary, but experiments will likely be observational only and not disturb the environment.

Will flags or markings be used? Locations of trap stations will be marked wire flags and flagging but all flags will be removed before leaving

Description of project/event:

As part of my Mammalogy course, students will learn how to conduct mark-recapture studies involving small mammals. My aim is to have them live-trap rodents - mostly kangaroo rats, deer mice, and woodrats - at 2-3 locations at the BFS. Sherman live traps will be set at dusk and then checked at dawn. Animals will be marked with ear tags and released. This will take place over the course of one week in late September or early October. Depending on availability and access to other field sites, we may also do some observational studies of rabbits (dusk-dawn spotlighting or roadside counts), carnivores (scat and camera surveys), or ground squirrels (cameras, seed tray foraging studies). These activities would be done on separate visits from live trapping. My IACUC and California DFW SCP renewals are currently pending and I will not conduct any work until they are in place.

Description of project/event:
We are studying the foraging behavior of honey bee colonies. One project is focused on determining which pollen sources honey bees will use when they have a choice between native flowers (especially coastal sage scrub species such as California buckwheat) and non-native ornamental flowers found in residential areas. The other project involves experiments to determine how floral scents and distributions affect honey bee foragers' decisions to advertise the locations of patches of flowers to their sister foragers.

Confidential description of project/event:
We plan to keep 2-3 hives at the site southwest of pHake Lake to collect pollen from this year. This fall we also plan to periodically move one small colony in an observation hive to the shed in the lower neck so we can video record bee behaviors within the hive. We will be placing small arrays of artificial flowers near the shed for these experiments.

We have IACUC approval for this project and the students have all completed IACUC training. We will be working with USGS biologists and will be borrowing some of their traps and we will be providing them with all the data we collect. We will also be trying out 2 basking traps owned by Pomona College.

For herbaceous plants, specimens will normally consist of one or two entire plants with reproductive structures (flowers and fruits). For very small herbaceous plants, several plants will be collected. For shrubs and trees, samples will consist of leaves and reproductive structures. Field notes to be associated with the specimens will include county, locality, elevation, GPS coordinates, habitat, date, collector, a description of the plant, and notes on the population.

Documentation of the flora of the Bernard Field Station. To facilitate future research and monitoring, vascular plants occurring on the field station will be documented with photographs and with voucher specimens deposited in the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden Herbarium (http://www.rsabg.org/herbarium) (see details under "Collecting"). Information about the voucher specimens will be available online through the Cosortium of California Herbaria (http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/consortium/), and links to photographs and herbarium specimen data will be available on the online BFS plant list (http://bfs.claremont.edu/biota/plants/index.html).
