First, a hill profile was recorded along the Eastern side of the transect, from the lowest part of the hill upwards to the top. Using the clinometer tool, the angle of the hill was recorded at each 1.0m increment for a total of ten measurements along the side of the transect. A profile of the hill has been analyzed and produced according to the observed values seen on the clinometer. After these observations were taken, the temperature of the soil was recorded 5.0cm below the ground, at ground level, and 1.0 meters above the ground, These measurements were recorded as 5.6oC five cm below, 5.2oC at ground level, and 6.8oC five centimetres above ground level. Afterwards, the plant species present in the area were recorded using photography and writing.
