Capturing California’s Flowers: - a new resource for detecting the link between flowering time and climate.
 
 
In California, thousands of native pollinator, bird, and mammal species depend on native flowering plants for the pollen, nectar, fruits, and seeds they provide. In turn, the flowering time of California native plants determines the abundance and availability of these food sources during our brief seasonal flowering periods.  How will this availability change in response to climate change?  A new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant provided to UC Santa Barbara and collaborators throughout California will help answer this question.

CCBER's Katja Seltmann will be teaching a one-day short course at the Ecological Society of America meeting this year. The short course, called Field to Collections, highlights insect and plant sampling methods through the eyes of taxonomists for ecologists. The agenda includes sampling methods, good data, specimen vouchering in natural history collections, and databasing.
