Impacts of Climate Change on Seasonal Transitions

Plant and Rain

Today’s Topic

Phenology is the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, especially their timing and relationships with weather and climate.  Plant phenology can be measured in multiple ways on the ground, by satellite sensors, and other instruments.  These data provide tangible evidence of the impacts of climate change on the biosphere.  Citizen scientists help record crucial information through online resources provided by the USA National Phenology Network.  Prof. Schwartz research is focused on phenology and detecting climate change.
