New Phenology Apps Help Track Bloom Times and Global Warming

One way to track the change in climate is to record bloom times of plants over the years.  There are three Smartphone apps that allow you to do this.  One is called PhenoMap and it allows users to collect data using Flickr accounts.  Another is called Natures Notebook and it allows users to record plant and animal life cycle events like migrations and plant phenology.  You first have to register with the National Phenology Network. It is also available for Android phones. The third one is called Project BudBurst for Android (iPhone coming soon they say) and it also includes a game called Floracaching which is like geocaching but with plants! I would be interested if anyone plays this game and how it turns out. – Steve Young
