National Phenology Network

Tucson, AZ - United States

The USA-NPN's National Coordinating Office (NCO) guides the development of the Network, facilitates communication between scientists, land managers, policy-makers, and the public who are interested in assessing the effects of global change on natural ecological systems. Staff members work for the US Geological Survey, The University of Arizona and The Wildlife Society.

Nature's Notebook gathers information on plant and animal phenology across the U.S. to be used for decision-making on local, national and global scales to ensure the continued vitality of our environment.

Scientists alone cannot collect enough data: They need your help. Join more than 6,000 other naturalists across the nation in taking the pulse of our planet. You'll use scientifically-vetted observation guidelines, developed for over 900 species, to ensure data are useful to researchers and decision-makers.

Surprisingly, there has never been a statutory requirement for any one organisation to collect records on a long-term basis. Despite this a national Biological Records Centre was set up in 1964 to collate data, particularly from voluntary recording schemes, to make information available to conservation bodies and to publish the results. The lack of co-ordinated resources to work with local and national recorders resulted in no one organisation be

Remote Sensing Phenology
United States

Remote Sensing Phenology uses satellites to track seasonal changes in vegetation on regional, continental, and global scales. Because the most frequently used satellite sensors for monitoring phenological events have relatively large "footprints" on the land surface, they gather data about entire ecosystems or regions rather than individual species. Remote sensing phenology can reveal broad-scale phenological trends that would be difficult, if no

North American Bird Phenology Program
United States

Phenology is the study of recurring plant and animal life cycle stages, or phenophases, such as leafing and flowering of plants, maturation of agricultural crops, emergence of insects, and migration of birds. Many of these events are sensitive to climatic variation and change, and are simple to observe and record. The North American Bird Phenology Program, part of the USA-National Phenology Network, was a network of volunteer observers who rec

United States

Phenology is a segment of ecology focusing on the study of periodic plant and animal life-cycle events that are influenced by climate and seasonal change in the environment. Skunks emerging from winter dens, sandhill cranes trumpeting their return, and seeds ripening are all examples of annual phenological events. Phenology is derived from the Greek word phaino meaning to show or appear, indicating its principal concern with the dates of first oc
