Dairy Bush GigaPan - 189 – April 17 2013
Year 4 - Week 31 - 360°

A week of crazy spring weather that saw ice storm, high winds, thunder storms, some snow, and temperatures above 20 for the first time in 2013. Today was clear and a beautiful cool morning (4C and 71% humidity). Flies active in the leaf litter and chickadees and woodpeckers in the trees. One large walnut tree was blown down on the east side of the Dairy Bush near one of the 2011 canopy Malaise traps. Crazy to see how far ahead the spring flora was this time last year (below). This year, the bloodroot and troutlilly’s aren’t even out yet!

I've extracted images from a year of Dairy Bush GigaPans to illustrate the rapid decomposition of the leaf litter in this forest associated with the presence of non-native worms. The forest floor is changing! www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRRv09_oF5w Will open in a new tab or window
