Introduction to Phenology

  • What is phenology?
  • Nature’s calendar
  • Blooms and buds
  • Hibernation, migration emergence
  • Easy to observe from leaf to globe

Value of phenology

Phenology data helps us understand how plants, animals and landscapes respond to environmental variation and climate change.

USA National Phenology Network

Primary goal

To encourage observation of phenological events and understand how plants, animals and landscapes respond to environmental variation and climate change.

Mission

Make phenology data, models and related information available to scientists, resource managers and the public.

Encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to observe and record phenology.

A national network of integrated phenological observations across space and time.

Education Program Goals

Science and Climate Literacy

Science-Nature-Self Relationships

The Integration of Science and Education

Engage observers with Nature’s Notebook and data collection through providing directed scientific outdoor experiences.

What is a phenophase?

An observable stage in the annual lifecycle of a plant or animal that can be defined by a start and end point. Often having a duration of a few days or weeks.

Extension Models in Action

YEAR ONE Program Goals:

Training MG Volunteers as citizen scientists, through MG course curriculum. Nature’s Notebook teaches observation, plant ID, problem solving

USA-NPN seeks to increase accuracy of reporting base to develop robust, useable dataset, engaging people in research and education

Program should provide opportunities for youth and adults to go outdoors, participate in nature and enhance STEM (science, engineering, technology, and Math skills

University of Arizona Cooperative Extension

Extension Models in Action

Year One Outcomes

Reporting base increased by 45. 20% of new users will continue to report. 10% of participants familiar with the science of phenology prior to course. Post-course, 100% understood phenology and research purpose. Docents selected.

Course successfully taught observation, journaling, plant ID, and problem solving.

University of Arizona Cooperative Extension

  • Supporting existing Extension Program buy-ins with methods for climate education
  • Facilitating local Phenology Trail Networks
slide18

Extension Models in Action

  • Tucson Phenology Trail Currently 6 locations
  • Total of 75 Miles, start to finish
  • 3-10 plants tagged at each site
  • Docent training program supporting collaboration between all participating programs
  • http://www.usanpn.org/phenologytrails
slide19

Extension Models in Action

1950s – first extensive phenological observation network through Ag Experiment Stations

USDA used phenology to characterize seasonal weather patterns to improve crop yield

J.M. Caprio, Montana State University, 1956, employed volunteers in 12 western states, ultimately utilizing 2,500 volunteers

Common purple lilac (S. vulgaris) initially, then honeysuckle in 1968. Switch to Red Rothomagensis lilac (S. chinensis).

Eastern Network established in 1970, still supported by USA-NPN

Collaboration between Specialists, Range/Ag Center, and Agents

Historic Lilac at Santa Rita Experimental Range

Long Term Data Set
