Prof. Primack and Alum Miller-Rushing in NY Times
Prof. Richard Primack
and former doctoral student, Dr. Abe Miller-Rushing
published an article, "Early Bloomers"
, in the April 18, 2012 edition of the New York Times. Using the detailed journals of Henry David Thoreau, Drs. Primack and Miller-Rushing were able to chart the trend towards earlier blooms and concluded that spring is indeed arriving earlier than in years past.
