Fingerprints of change: Abisko plants and phenology citizen science

Abisko plants and phenology (fjällkalendern) aims at collecting species distributions and phenology data for the Abisko region (focused in and around Abisko National Park). This project is part of our larger efforts to identify the fingerprints of environmental change in Abisko. We have over 100 years of plant distribution and phenology data, plus weather data (1913 to present), from researchers at the Abisko Scientific Research Station. This provides a unique time machine to allow us to quantify the change to the plant communities of this region perched on the edge of the Arctic.
