Phenology across LTER: 2/26-3/2/2007

Phenology is the study of the timing, variability, and change in recurring biological events. Familiar examples of phenological events include the onset of spring growth and the autumnal leaf fall, the migrations of birds and butterflies, and the flowering and fruiting in wildflowers, trees, and crops.   During February 26 to March 2, Geoff Henebry organized and led a workshop entitled "Phenology across LTER" at the University of New Mexico's Sevilleta Field Station located in the 100,000 ha Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge. LTER stands for Long-Term Ecological Research, a network of sites funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to understand how ecological processes vary and respond to environmental change through many years. The workshop gathered a small group of scientists from South Dakota, Puerto Rico, Oregon, New Mexico, Massachusetts, and Arizona representing seven LTER sites to evaluate the status of ongoing and prior phenological research in the LTER network, initiate a synthesis of a subset of these dataset, and formulate recommendations about how the LTER network can facilitate phenological research and interact with the emerging National Phenology Network. This workshop was funded by the NSF LTER Network Office as a follow-on event to a phenology working group at the 2006 LTER All Scientists Meeting that occurred last September in Estes Park, Colorado.
