Partner Type - Science and Technology Programs

USA-NPN and Ameriflux sites are working together to develop phenology monitoring protocols for individual plants at the ground level to be coupled with eddy flux measurements (e.g., CO2, H2O). Ameriflux is also contributing to the development of a canopy cam network.

The Natural History Institute cultivates and models an all-too rare integrated approach to natural history—a place where art, science, poetry, and philosophy seamlessly meld. The Institute provides opportunities for Prescott College and the general public to directly engage with the natural world through educational and public outreach programs, a vibrant art gallery that hosts workshops and guest speakers, along with research and teaching collections of plants, insects, and rocks, that highlight the diversity of Arizona's Central Highlands. 

Staff, faculty, and students at the Natural History Institute are tracking phenology of several plants. This program is rapidly growing to engage community members at the Prescott College facility and beyond.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has provided significant collaboration to develop the cyberinfrastructure and information management system for the USA-NPN. ORNL continues to work with USA-NPN and the USGS to enhance the database and data model functionality. An ORNL Laboratory-Directed Research and Development grant to the Environmental Sciences Division funded this work in part.

Pawpaw growers across the Midwest are working together to track phenology of various pawpaw cultivars. This information will inform recommendations for growing the fruits for commercial uses.
