Seed trapping!

Originally when I started in the graduate program my thesis was to be based around seed trapping, however, the only experiment I conducted on it has yet to be analyzed. Now I have the data compiled and looking for certain trends. There is a still much more to go, but here is a quick initial finding. With increasing distance from shrubs, there is significantly less seeds present in the transient seedbank. The most amount of seed was found at drip line of the shrub, with less and at further distances away. Interestingly, the least amount of seeds were recorded well within the shrub canopy. This means that the physical obstruction of the drip line is catching seeds preventing them from blowing in the open or reaching too far into the shrub itself.
