Radford University Phenology Monitoring

Radford University Phenology Monitoring in Radford, VA is using Nature's Notebook to initiate long-term phenology monitoring projects - beginning with "Field Biology & Phenology" advanced undergraduate course at Radford University. This will provide students experience in monitoring local plant and animal species (identification, structure, function, ecology, field techniques) and applied, hands-on approach to investigating seasonal changes, site and climate relationships, and associated ecological and environmental issues. Student groups would initiate monitoring projects and collect data throughout the semester; projects will be continued with small student groups during the summer, and by students in Ecology and Forest & Wetland Ecology courses in the fall and beyond.
