The tree investigated was the Quercus. Pinus, L.This was a very interesting tree.To find out all information on this tree, steps were taken by doing hands on work to determine height, age, circumference, leaf and stem differences. Taking layers off the epidermis of the leaf, a transdermal section along with a cross section was done to show differences in the sun and shade leaves. Chromatography and stomata counts were also done in the sun and shade leaves.Stem longitudinal sections were also used to show differences in sun stems and shade stems.By investigating the parts of the tree mentioned, also proved information that was noted for the Q. pinus.A computer was also used to find very accurate descriptions of this tree to help with data noted.
