Project BudBurst launched in 2007 as a national field campaign. It was designed to engage the public in the observation and collection of important ecological data based on the timing of leafing, flowering, and fruiting of plants (aka plant phenophases). The data are collected in a consistent manner across the country so scientists can use this information to learn more about the responsiveness of individual plant species to changes in climate locally, regionally and nationally.
