A Field Study Tour Report on Zoology field report

Introduction

Field studies are an important part of any biology or zoology course. They allow students to get up close and personal with the animals they’re studying, which allows them to learn in a more holistic way. One such field study was recently completed by students enrolled in my course on invertebrate zoology. The field study took place at a salt marsh in southeastern Louisiana, and it focused on the mating habits of the American oyster (Crassostrea virginica). In this blog post, I’ll share some of the highlights of our field study and how you can apply what we learned to your own coursework.

The Wildlife of the Area

The wildlife of the area is varied and plentiful. One of the most common sights in the area are deer, which can be found grazing on various types of vegetation. Other common animals include raccoons, opossums, skunks, and bats. The area also contains a number of bird species, including bald eagles, hawks, and owls.

Observations and Photographs of the Wildlife

The professor and I took a field study tour of the Zoology department at CSU, Chico. Our primary focus was observing the wildlife on and around the campus. The professor is an expert in ornithology, so we were especially interested in seeing the birds. We started by touring the ornithology lab where they keep all of the birds. There were a total of 18 different types of birds! After touring the lab, we went outside to see the birds in their natural habitats.

There were lots of different types of bird species around the campus. Some common ones included doves, sparrows, finches, robins, and crows. We also saw some unusual ones like a toucan and an eagles! We even saw a few hawks! One interesting observation that we made was that there seems to be a lot more sparrows around now than there used to be. The professor thinks that this might be because of all of the pollution that is going on nowadays. Overall, it was an informative experience to see all of these different types of birds up close and in their natural habitats.

Setting up the camera and gear

When planning a research trip to the field, it is important to think about what camera and gear you will need. For this study trip to Costa Rica, my goal was to capture footage of primates in the wild using a camera with a wide-angle lens. I opted for an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II body with the Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH lens, which is a versatile all-around zoom lens that can be used for wildlife photography as well as general photography.

To transport my equipment and keep it safe, I chose the Topeak Explorer Plus bike rack system. This system allows me to safely transport my camera and lenses on my bike while also attaching my tripod and other equipment. Overall, I am very happy with my decision to use this equipment and camera combination on this trip.

Observing and taking notes on the animals

This field study tour was a great opportunity to get to know the animals in our local zoo. We observed and took notes on many different animals, including the pandas, gorillas, lions, and elephants. We also got to see some of the exhibits that are specific to zoology, such as the aviary and the primatology department. Overall, this was a great experience and I learned a lot about the animals in our zoo.

The results of the study

As part of my field study for my zoology class, I took a tour of the University of Utah’s arid lands research facility. The research center is home to many different kinds of animals and plants that live in dry environments.

During our tour, we were able to see how the scientists monitor the animals and plants to see how they are doing. They also conduct experiments to see how different factors, like climate change, affects the environment.

Overall, the research center was very interesting and I learned a lot about how scientists study desert animals and plants.

Conclusion

Overall, the field study tour was a great experience and I came away with a greater appreciation for zoology. The diversity of wildlife we encountered was stunning, and I learned a lot about the importance of conservation. Seeing these animals up-close also made me more aware of how important it is to protect their habitats. Even though this trip was challenging in some ways (e.g., dealing with mosquitoes), overall it was well worth it.
