Phenology Tracking in Migratory Mule Deer

Ellen Aikens records vegetation data at a stopover location for her PhD research.


April 2014 - December 2018


In terrestrial ecosystems, there is critical need to understand the influence of climate change on the spatial and temporal heterogeneity in forage conditions and the wildlife species that depend on it. We aim to address the Green Wave hypothesis as it relates to phenological tracking along migration routes and summer ranges of migratory mule deer in western Wyoming
