Each week our resident phenologist John Latimer reports on the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate in his weekly Phenology Report.  This week, John reports on what he sees up in the trees and down on the forest floor.  Trees are breaking bud, ferns are popping, columbine are exposing themselves and more.

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Every Tuesday, as our resident phenologist, John Latimer said this morning, "we introduce you to the world we live in."  During the "talkback" section of our show, listeners get to be part of telling nature's story...We gather phenology related listener comments, questions and observations and share them.

Phenology is the rhythmic, biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Our resident phenologist John Latimer has been keeping phenology notes for 33 years, documenting the subtle and not so subtle changes he notices in the natural world.  Every week, he gives our listeners a full report of what he's noticing as well as what others have reported.  This week's report is full of hints of spring!  Horned larks, red fox, bluebirds and even the very early wound of a wood frog all make it into this week's report.
