CPP Data Visualizations

The USA-NPN has developed a visualization tool to explore the data entered in the National Phenology Database.  To download a tutorial on how to use this tool effectively click here.  Below we will compile examples of scenarios to explore CPP data.  

Comparison of Baccharis pilularis phenology in 2011 along coastal gradient: Redwood NP, Golden Gate NRA, and Santa Monica Mountains NRA 

Comparison of Heracleum maximum in 2011 in Redwood NP and Golden Gate NRA

Comparison of Eriogonum fasciculatum in 2012 in Santa Monica Mountains NRA and Joshua Tree NP
