Professor Richard Primack "Climate change research in partnership with Thoreau"

02/25/2014

In his blog, “Climate change research in partnership with Thoreau", Primack studies the effects of climate change on the timing of seasonal biological events and species diversity with the help of Henry David Thoreau and other local naturalists. The highlight of his most recent trip to “Thailand and Laos with a dash of Thoreau” was his visit to the Khao Yai National Park where he found the extremely abundant wildlife including pheasants, gibbons, sambar deer, hornbills, and procupines. Primack also measured the temperature of the bottom of the Walden Pond and worked with graduate student, Amanda Gallinat on autumn phenology in the Boston area. A separate blog entry posted by Caitlin McDonough MacKenzie focused on the common gardens in the Maine woods.
