This was a working session led by Alyssa Rosemartin and Alana Russell as a part of the 2022 FEMC Annual Conference. To learn more about the conference, visit: https://www.uvm.edu/femc/cooperative/conference/2022. Phenology is critical to ecosystem processes, from carbon cycling to pollination, and monitoring phenological events can be key to understanding ecosystem response to climate change. In this session we'll share examples of phenology monitoring for natural resource management already happening in the region and identify potential gaps. Together we will explore the benefits of monitoring phenology on a state- and region-wide scale, and outline the potential challenges to embarking on a coordinated phenology monitoring effort. We aim to share lessons learned and develop the groundwork for FEMC partners to make informed decisions about the relative priority of phenology monitoring in forest management.
