Visit Project Budbreak

April 28, 2009

What is Project Budbreak?   The web site has been established to help citizen scientists observe the effects of climate change on native plants in central New York.

Associated with a national effort, a network of citizen scientists is being established in central New York to observe the timing of flowering, leaf development, fruiting, and leaf drop in populations of common native trees and herbaceous species. This site will help observers to enter their data on the timing of important plant events through the growing season.

After registering as a participant, you will set up 1 or more sites that you will be observing regularly. For each site, you will set up 1 or more individual plants for which you will periodically record phenological data. – Information from the budbreak website.
