Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Iligan City is our locality that is positioned in the Northern part of Mindanao that is to be found in the Philippines. Iligan City is known as “City of Waterfalls” Iligan falls within the third type of climate wherein the seasons are not very pronounced. Rain is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year. Because of its tropical location the city does not experience cold weather. Neither does it experience strong weather disturbances due to its geographical location (being outside the typhoon belt) And also because of the mountains that are surrounding the city. Particularly in this city can be find a river named Mandulog. We have chosen our covered area to be Mandulog because this river is primarily the casualty of the typhoon Washi that bring-about thousand of the lives of Iliganon. Our school, “Iligan City East High School” is located at the eastern part of Iligan City. Our school is composed of thousands of students and more than 60 faculty members.

2. Summary of Our Project

Biodiversity refers to all life forms- plants, animals and ecosystem. It defines the variability among living organisms from all sources including terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems of which they are a part; this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems. This project shows the diversity of flora in Ma8indulog River within the buffer zone after the typhoon Washi which was being flashed flooded and eager to determine the different species which was being diversified. It also describes the physical and biological characteristics of Mandulog River, to determine the physic-chemical parameters of the buffer zone of Mandulog River, accounting and characterizing the perennial plants growing in the buffer zone of Mandulog River in terms of the community type, root structure, and estimating the relative abundance of the dominant perennial plants in every site under consideration. This information can be the basis of sustaining the growth performance of these plants and can serve as a stepping board to do appropriate actions in the conservation and rehabilitation of these resources.
