Teaching Tips

This short video is an excellent introduction to phenology in general, as well as when taking a regional focus or when considering seasonal and longer term changes.

It is also an introduction to the value of taking careful observational data and of citizen science.

While focused on Wisconsin and a terrific example of regional perspectives on changing climate, many of the principles discussed in the video and text are universal.
