Description/Abstract

The Southeastern Virginia Phenology Project (SVPP), located in Norfolk, Virginia. This project is a branch of the National Phenology Network, and its data will be combined with other projects across the United States to ascertain the connections between plant phenophases and climate change through the power of citizen science. The importance of this data is related to many environmental and ecological issues, such as the effects on pollinators and seed dispersers. Furthermore, it is potentially related to health and food concerns, such as allergies. With this data, researchers can better address ecological, environmental, and health related inquiries.
