Continental to Global Scale Assessment of Spring Phenological Change Professor Mark D Schwartz, Distinguished Professor of Geography, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Phenological research provides valuable approaches for understanding Earth systems interactions and facilitating global change studies. As a simple expression of seasonal biology, phenology offers another independent measure (along with climate records and remote sensing observations) of the […]
