Phabulous Phenology


Phenology is the study of how cyclical seasonal phenomena related to plant and animal life are influenced by climate. Studying these cyclical occurrences is one of the keys to managing invasive species like the wooly adelgid and keeping it from destroying local species like hemlock trees. Students created the Finger Lakes Phenology trail s a tool to help hikers and citizen scientists get a better understanding of the world around them and how to make phenological observations.
