How climate change will alter wildflowers
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of Washington and features a look at how climate change is already impacting wildflowers.
After an unusually warm and dry summer in 2015, researchers noticed that wildflowers on Mount Rainier in Washington began blooming at different times.
Instead of flowering weeks apart, the wildflowers starting blooming simultaneously, which impacts the entire ecosystem of pollinators and animals.
