Project BudBurst Mobile
A mobile version of the national citizen science campaign to observe plant responses to climate.
Project BudBurst is a citizen science campaign for the study of the timing of life cycle events in plants as they relate to the environment. With the help of volunteers, we wish to understand what "calendar" plants use to begin flowering, leafing or reproducing.
Plants respond to their local climate and according to scientists the Earth is warming more quickly than it has in the past. Project BudBurst Mobile helps you monitor the trees, shrubs, and grasses that help scientists determine how life is changing in response to a globally changing climate.
Project BudBurst Mobile is a partnership between the National Environmental Observatory Network (NEON) and the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) at UCLA and is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
