In December this year, SeasonWatch held its first bioblitz event called the Winter Tree Quest. The idea of this even was to rapidly collect phenology data on the common and widespread trees of India.
we are thrilled with the participation we saw this time! 121 individuals, 50 schools & 34 colleges contributed data on 14814 trees from 23 states! Here are the results of the Winter Tree Quest
The top 5 individual contributors from across India are given below. It was spectacular to see individual observations exceeding 400!
The top 5 school/college contributors from across India are given below. The top count exceeded 4000! More power to these citizen scientists!
Most number of observations came from these 5 states. Kerala contributed a phenomenal 78% of all observations!
What were the top species recorded across the country? Here is a graph of the tree species which had more than 250 observations from across the country
Wondering how the most observed trees are behaving across India? Here is the proportion of trees of Coconut palm, Mango, Jackfruit, Neem and Teak that have fresh leaves, open flowers or unripe fruits. 'N' here means the total number of trees observed. More results and summaries to follow, so keep watching this space!
