June 29: a day of phenology

Today was a productive day for Team Echinacea! We started the day by heading into the remnants and flagging every possible Echinacea that we could find. Our group was visited by Amy Dykstra who helped us in finding many newly flowering plants.

The Search for Echinacea

Amy, Taylor, and a sea of flowering Echinacea.

Amy gave us a talk on her dissertation as well as on the groundbreaking new Aster analysis that she’s working on. It was an exciting day for the team and we currently have more than 1200 flowering heads flagged.
