I'm still working on a new blog post, but wanted to share a great article I saw at The Atlantic. I found it fascinating and relevant to the general content of HollerPhenology. The article at Science Advances is open access, and can be downloaded here.
From the article:
About three-quarters of tree species common to eastern American forests—including white oaks, sugar maples, and American hollies—have shifted their population center west since 1980. More than half of the species studied also moved northward during the same period.
These results, among the first to use empirical data to look at how climate change is shaping eastern forests, were published in Science Advances on Wednesday.
