Project BudBurst at NEON Sites
Project BudBurst at NEON Sites is a partnership with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). Funded by the National Science Foundation and managed by Batelle, NEON provides open, continental-scale data that characterize and quantify complex, rapidly changing ecological processes. Sites are strategically located across the US within 20 ecoclimatic domains that represent regions of distinct landforms, vegetation, climate and ecosystem dynamics. Staff & volunteers are monitoring plants to learn how they respond to changes in their environments.
National Ecological Observatory Network
NEON is a continental-scale observation system for examining ecological change over time. They collect data about plants, animals, soil, nutrients, freshwater and the atmosphere using sensor measurements and field observations at sites across the United States.
