Your mission is to collect phenology observations on species found in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Phenology is the study of life cycle events in plants and animals and their timing. Phenology is an important indicator of climate change because these life cycle events are unique to each species and are driven by cues in the environment. These events are called phenophases. A changing climate may affect when certain phenophases occur, causing them to appear earlier or later than in the past. Scientists study the timing of these events to understand species response to climate change through time.
