Ecology On-Campus Field Trip Our ecology On-Campus field trip was very intriguing. The Bishop Fenwick campus is very diverse and many different biomes could be used to describe the campus. In class we learned that a Biome is a group of ecosystems that share similar abiotic and biotic conditions. A region’s climate determines which biome covers a specific area. While walking around the Fenwick campus, I made a few observations that led me to specify which biome covered the area. Through research in my notes, I quickly came to the conclusion that the biome that covered the region of the Bishop Fenwick campus was specified as “Temperate Forest”. Temperate forests in the Eastern United States are mostly covered by broad-leafed deciduous trees. The climate throughout the year, spreads precipitation evenly. Weather varies constantly throughout the year. Hot summers and cold winters cause the evenly spread of precipitation. The soil in temperate forests is known for their enriched soil with nutrients from annual leaf drop. Plants are often broad-leafed and deciduous. Animals like bears and deer are very common in these areas. Animals often may migrate, hibernate, or store food to survive very cold conditions in the winter. Animals that are active all winter, like deer, mice, and chipmunks build up their own fat reserves and hide food for later consumption. Temperate forests are very beautiful and are often admired by the color the leaves become in the fall.

Right to Tax VS Not to Tax During the 17th Century, British Parliament dug themselves into a very big financial hole that eventually would lead to many historical events. With the French and Indian war being a very big war that lasted quite awhile, the British suddenly became behind financially. Eventually the British won the war and had a very big debt to pay off. The British were in a panic and there only choice were to tax the colonies. This tax really provoked the Americans. They were not pleased whatsoever because they felt that they were not a part of the English constitution. From then on things just got worse. Colonists started protesting, they started a boycott, and eventually the biggest political protest in history known as The Boston Tea Party occurred. Now the British think it is okay for them to tax the colonists. They find it okay for them to put their debts in the colonist’s hands and have them pay for it. Conversations today still speculate whether Parliament should have the right to tax the colonies or should not have the right to tax the colonies. Many people have different opinions and since they have the freedom of speech it becomes a very hard topic to discuss and make a decision on. It is a very interesting topic because there are so many facts for both sides. Many that think Parliament should be able to tax the colonies state that Parliament is a form of government and they have the right to put a tax on any item that they want. This on the other hand is absolutely wrong. Parliament should not be able to tax the colonists for many reasons. One reason is it is against the law to commit internal taxation. Internal taxation also known as “Direct” taxation is completely illegal because they are being taxed without the consent.
