A research scientist will discuss the phenology shifts in the Teton Range at the University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center Thursday, June 27. The center is located at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park.
Trevor Bloom, a phenology scientist and a Nature Conservancy research associate, will discuss “For Everything There Was a Season: Retracing Craighead’s Footsteps to Track Phenology Shifts in the Tetons” at 6:30 p.m. at the AMK Ranch, located north of Leeks Marina.
A barbecue, at a cost of $5 per person, will take place at 5:30 p.m. Reservations are not required. The talk is part of the weekly Harlow Summer Seminars series.
Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors, such as elevation.
Bloom works as a phenology scientist for the Nature Conservancy in Wyoming. He also owns and works as a naturalist guide in the greater Yellowstone area for Guides of Jackson Hole. Beyond science and guiding, Bloom produces short films, including his newest documentary, “Climb-it Change,” which reveals the impacts of climate change on alpine ecosystems through an adventure traversing the entire Rocky Mountain chain, rock climbing and summiting 76 mountains.
The UW-NPS Research Center provides a base for university faculty members and government scientists from throughout North America to conduct research in the diverse aquatic and terrestrial environments of Grand Teton National Park and the greater Yellowstone area.
Formerly called the AMK Ranch Talk Series, the Harlow Summer Seminars program is named after retired UW Department of Zoology and Physiology Professor Hank Harlow, who helped make the UW-NPS Research Center a significant center for research and community outreach. Harlow began the popular weekly public seminars during the summer months.
