Rocky Mountain Bio Lab: Wildflowers

This video explores the work of environmentalist John Hart, a Professor of Environmental Science at U.C. Berkley. In the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Dr. Hart has established an experimental laboratory in which he has artificially created and maintained a 3-degree increase in surface temperature of a plot of land, and documented the impact on plant species occupying the plot.

BioBlitz mapping activity somewhat similar to this one (see http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/activity/mapping-biodi...) would be a logical accompaniment to the Rocky Mountain Bio Lab video to get students engaged within their own local communities to experiment with the effects of climate change on plant species.
