Summary

The timing of first leaf and first bloom is a critical indicator of spring phenology and false springs have known harmful impacts to ecosystems and agriculture in the United States. The timing of first leaf and first bloom is critically important for migratory species along their migratory paths. As the climate changes, the mismatch between the first leaf and first bloom and the arrival or emergence of species (called phenological mismatch) is a potential danger for the survival of multiple species under climate change. This project produced projections of first leaf, first bloom, and the risk of false springs for the South Central CASC region. Findings from this study suggest that first leaf and first bloom will happen earlier while [...]
