Project Budburst

Project BudBurst: Plants tell a story about our changing climate. Phenology is the science of tracking a plant. The timing of a plant leafing, flowering and fruiting is affected by temperature, rainfall and day length.

A worldwide network of "citizen scientists" is being created to track the changes in plant seasons, and you can join through Duke Gardens. The data will go into an international resource, the Plant Phenology Network, to assist scientists studying climate.

Please click the logo above to help collect information for plants in North Carolina.

We thank you for making Duke Gardens a part of your life.
