This spring, we have two new researcher-driven campaigns. The Redbud Phenology Project, led by Dr. Jorge Santiago-Blay at National Museum of Natural History and Penn State York, seeks to refine understanding of redbud phenology and masting. Quercus Quest, supported by an NSF Dimensions of Biodiversity award and involving researchers representing The Morton Arboretum, University of Oklahoma, University of Minnesota, Duke University, and USGS, addresses hybridization in oaks and interactions with insects and fungi. Both of these campaigns are excellent examples of how you can collaborate with the USA-NPN to amplify phenology data collection to support your management needs.
