Phenology: Phenology is the study of natural cycles. When do the flowers bloom? When do the leaves change color? When do the Salmon run? When do the bees appear? The combination of the Internet (citizen scientists) and global warming has lead to in increase in interest in phenology.

If you'd like to be a citizen scientist, check out the National Phenology Network. If you live in Minnesota, check out Phenology Radio. For more information check out Wikipedia.
