Are you curious about climate change and plant phenology? Then, make plans to join us on Tuesday, September 14, as Dr. Megan O’Connell joins us for our monthly chapter meeting.
Dr. O’Connell will be discussing how climate change is altering plant phenology and impacting plant-pollinator interactions. She’ll be sharing findings from her dissertation work in tropical forests and how she is building off this work to explore phenology in Texas prairie ecosystems while at BRIT. For these projects she’ll be introducing some novel tech and community-driven research methods and share some opportunities for the Blackland Prairie Master Naturalist Chapter to help participate in local phenological data collection efforts.
