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.

Stories from Year 3 of Vegetation Monitoring at NCOS

This summer, CCBER conducted the 3rd year of vegetation monitoring at the North Campus Open Space restoration project. With three years of this data, we can now see more clearly how the restoration is progressing, and where more work or a change in management may be needed. Here we report on some of this year’s data and what it is telling us.
