But climate change is knocking the timing of flowering and fruiting out of whack for many plants in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem according to a new study authored by scientists at The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Wyoming.
For scientist Sophie Gilbert, who spent four recent summers tracking the movements of Sitka black-tailed deer in the Tongass National Forest in a project with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, that means notebooks with waterproof paper.
“Once this purchase goes through, we’ll be stuck with more than 100,000 new gas-guzzling vehicles on neighborhood streets, serving homes across our state and across the country, for the next 30 years,” Bonta said.
For example, they can add up how much gasoline is being burned and how many fossil fuel power plants are running at a given time, to calculate how much carbon is being exhaled into the atmosphere.
Using off-the-shelf accelerometers, researchers have been quantifying how trees sway differently over time: when they’re warmer or colder, hydrated or dehydrated, weighed down by snow or unburdened.But with accelerometers, scientists have a new way of measuring how much rain or snow a particular tree in a forest ends up intercepting.
As of 19 April, the New Zealand Drought Index (NZDI) map below shows that dry conditions are now located in parts of the West Coast, central Otago, and northern Southland.

Their city eventually grew to more than twice Uruk’s population, and today Anuradhapura is one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities and still cares for a tree planted over 2,000 years ago.
In spring, male sage grouse gather on leks to attract females.Most species of bustard lek, and birders familiar with sage grouse and prairie chicken will find their displays familiar: strutting and stamping, and a lot of inflated air sacs.
In the North Island, soil moisture levels were generally normal or above normal, for the time of year, with the exception of the Hauraki Plains in Waikato, the Kaipara District in Northland, and around New Plymouth in Taranaki.
NIWA meteorologists say the 103 mm of rain from 4am-5am recorded at Maungatapere near Whangārei on Monday 21 March is a new national hourly rainfall record for a low elevation station.
As of 22 March, the New Zealand Drought Index (NZDI) map below shows that dry or very dry conditions are located in Northland, Auckland, northern Waikato, western Bay of Plenty, coastal Otago, and much of Southland.
This resulted in moderate to large soil moisture decreases across nearly the entire North Island, with the exception of parts of Gisborne and northern Hawke’s Bay. The driest soils across the North Island, when compared to normal for this time of the year, are found across much of Northland, Auckland, northern Waikato, interior Bay of Plenty, and East Cape, while the wettest soils for this time of the year are found in Kāpiti Coast and Wairarapa.

“Nearby that one is another one, about five miles out is another one, and that’s just one little area.” Harris (Inupiaq) was born in 1957 and spent his childhood across Kotzebue Sound in Sisualik.
Compared to the control, the number of flower landings decreased by 89 percent for diesel, 83 percent for ozone, and 90 percent for both.“Our results suggest that air pollution is another potential stressor to add to the growing pressures on pollinators”—a list that already includes disease, habitat loss , and pesticides, says lead author James Ryalls, a research fellow studying the chemical ecology of plant-insect interactions.
