Featured Phenomenon: Plant Growth Patterns

Featured Phenomenon: Plant Growth Patterns

Purpose

We often take the Biosphere for granted and as the climate changes, plant species and ecosystems respond by adapting, migrating or reducing their population.  Why is this important?  The plants of the Biosphere feed us, clothe us, absorb carbon dioxide, provide us with oxygen, and give us building materials and medications. If our vegetation is impacted, so too are our human health, economy, and environments.

My NASA Data provides you with a variety of resources, helping you to uncover this phenomenon with your students.
