Objective(s): To measure phenological and growth responses of major circumpolar plant species to simulated climate change.

Project Description: The researcher and his team will use simple experiments in the field to simulate the warming climate, and then measure how the timing of the life cycle events (phenology) and growth of each species is affected.
