Citizen science project records shoots and leaves to understand climate change

For many tree species in India, we don’t have enough widespread and long-term data to make meaningful links to a changing climate.
SeasonWatch, a citizen science initiative, is collecting data about leafing, flowering and fruiting in common trees from volunteers to understand their seasonal phases and links with changing seasons.
Though the program is open to all, its special focus on schools is helping engage with more people, spreading interest and awareness about the natural world and how it is changing, while also receiving consistent data from ‘citizen scientists’.
