Can a status update from a flower tell us something about climate change? Researchers at UC Santa Barbara explain how studying the life-cycle of plants can give us a wealth of information about climate. They're working with the National Phenology Network to encourage everyone to track the seasonal changes of plants in their own backyards. Scientists can use this data to better understand both the effects of climate change and pinpoint some possible solutions on a local level.
