Overview

Join AMC Research Staff Scientist Georgia Murray to learn how to use a free app called iNaturalist that identifies living things in your back yard and beyond. You can then use the iNaturalist tool to contribute to AMC's ongoing plant flowering study related to climate change. AMC's scientists rely on photos of a set of common woodland plants that you upload. The app confirms the plant identity. Observations can be made along the Appalachian Trail corridor to understand seasonal development in the context of climate change. The more photos that are posted, the better we will be able to understand the large variability that is inherent in mountain environments. We will also share an update of what we have learned from similar work in the alpine zone in New Hampshire.
