The New York Phenology Project has chosen a focal species list in order to create a dataset that allows tracking across our partner sites along an urbanization gradient. Each partner site has a distinct species list (that sometimes include species not on this focal list), that overlaps as much as possible with the other sites in the network. NYPP has created species profiles for each species that can be used by partner sites or particpating organizations for education purposes. We are in the process of creating them and are asking our volunteers to submit photos so that we can create a complete set of profiles with open access photos of each phenophase. Currently, not all species below have finished profiles, and we don't have photos for all of our species. Let us know if you have photos to submit!
