Timing is Everything: The Impacts of Changes in Phenology

A Janet Meakin Poor Research Symposium

Monday, June 12, 2017
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

$59 nonmember; $47.20 members;
$29 with student ID; call (847) 835-6801 to register at this rate.

Phenology is the study of the timing of natural events such as plant owering
and fruiting, and animal migrations. is timing is critical for relationships
between species; plants need to bloom when their pollinators are present,
birds and insects need to hatch or migrate when food is available, and so on.

As the climate changes, some phenological events are also changing, which can
disrupt these important relationships. is symposium will look at
phenological change: how to assess it, and what it means for population
dynamics of plants and their relationships with other species.
