I'll be talking about phenology and trees at ClimTree 2013 this fall in Zürich. I have to dash on the 3rd of September but hope to catch up with people on the 1st and 2nd (and possibly a couple days before).
I have an awesome new email address (see below). The old one redirects, but the new one sounds better. Thanks Alistair!
I'll be at the AGU Fall Meeting this December giving an invited talk covering some of my phenology work entitled, 'Progress and hurdles to forecasting phenology: How networked experiments and a species' traits framework can improve predictions with climate change.' Also, the meta-analysis of two major phenological databases is finally out at Ecosystems.
In the summer I worked up some of the results of comparing the flowering times and temperature sensitivity of native versus non-native species. I also finally made it out to Tofino.
Elsa Cleland and I, along with other working group members, have a new paper out in the journal Ecology. It uses plant performance data from our public STONE database to show how phenological sensitivity to temperature may predict performance responses to warming (for a quick synopsis, see write-up in Nature Climate Change).
Ben Cook and I, along with Camille Parmesan, have anew paper out in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looking at how wild plant species may be responding to warmer winters. Check out the paper here, and coverage by ScienceNews, ScienceDaily and EP.
New work that I led with the Forecasting Phenology working group came out in Nature. Read the article here, watch a video summary here and read some of the reporting from UCSD, NASA, Science Now, CTV, Sveriges Radio, Frankfurter Allgemeine and the BBC.
My paper with Jim Regetz and Mary O'Connor on how to accelerate global change research is now available at Global Change Biology (here). Also, I worked on two new phenology papers just out: one led by Joe Craine examines phenology as a functional trait at New Phytologist, and one from the Cleland lab led by Claire Wainwright at Journal of Applied Ecology examines some of the hypotheses from my Frontiers in Ecology & the Environment paper in the field using experimental abiotic forcings (links from here).
I had a great trip to Vienna in April to talk at the Seasons and Phenology session at the European Geophysical Union annual meeting. Many thanks to the session organizers for a great meeting. My talk and others in the New Developments in Phenology Symposium, also in Vienna, are available here.
I just moved to the Biodiversity Research Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia as of mid-January 2012. Please update to my new email address.
Thanks to those who came to the AGU session that Ben Cook and I organized, 'Beyond Earlier Spring: Diverse Phenological Responses to Climate Across Species and Ecosystems,' at the annual meeting in San Francisco this December. Special thanks to all those who presented, including Josep Penuelas and Eric Post for great invited talks.
My paper with Steph Pau and seven other Forecasting Phenology working group members, 'Predicting phenology: Integrating climatology and evolution to improve forecasting in ecology' is out at Global Change Biology (here).
My paper on the theory behind how phenology may be important in plant invasions came out in the June 2011 issue of Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment and was recommended by the Faculty of 1000. My opinion paper with Erin Wilson, 'Scavenging: How carnivores and carrion structure communities' is out in March issue at Trends in Ecology and Evolution.
I moved from NCEAS to UC-San Diego in late July 2010. I'll keep an eye on my old NCEAS email for a while longer but please update your address books.
