3. Knowledge of where animals forage for food is essential for effective wildlife management and conservation. The data below are foraging heights (in m) for a sample of Mountain Chickadees. The data are taken from two different species of fir trees: the Douglas fir and the White fir.Douglas: 22, 15, 16, 16, 16, 17, 17, 17, 18, 19, 19, 10, 10, 13, 13, 14 6,7, 7,8,8,9,3White: 28, 25, 21, 21, 18, 18, 16, 14, 14, 15, 15, 15, 15, 12, 12, 13 13,11,11, 8, 8, 7, 5, 3(a) Display these data using a comparative (backtoback) stemandleaf plot. Use the stems shown below, and be sure to include all information needed to compare the two distributions.
