    alpine plant phenology efforts this summer

    AMC is continuing its Mountain Watch program to encourage people to record alpine plant phenology (what stage a plant is in, bud, flower, seed, etc.) for ecological research; they're including any of the above-treeline areas in the northeast (including Monadnock and Cardigan) & the six target species are


    labrador tea (Ledum groenlandicum)


    diapensia (Diapensia lapponica)


    mountain cranberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea)


    mountain avens (Geum peckii)


    alpine bilberry (Vaccinium uliginosum)

    Bigelow's sedge (Carex bigelowii)

    I participated in this program last year and found it to be interesting and rewarding. I learned a lot about each target species and got a lot of satisfaction in contributing to the body of knowledge.
