Learn about how willing Brooklyn College undergraduate students are to reduce their red-meat consumption to alleviate the climate change crisis.
What’s happening to the U.S. bee population? Is there truly a correlation between carbon emissions and bee populations? Or is it all coincidence?
Have you see those red spotted flies at your every step? Spotted Lantern Flies have emerged since 2014 on the Eastcoast but why have we seen them more recently? Click here to learn more!
If you want to research a climate change issue that affects your school community, this is for you! Campus as a Lab explores a project pushing sustainability in the classroom.
Upon discovering that 100 of the 350 birds in NYC have fallen into an area of concern, we decided to investigate whether climate change as contributed to this trend. We hypothesized that climate change is why NYC birds have declined and that no bird could thrive in warmer conditions. Our results found that climate change would contribute to the loss in different species impacting Arctic birds the most.
Climate and temperature changes may greatly affect species that depend on environmental cues for reproduction, migration, and hibernation triggers. The purpose of this study was to test if migration patterns of monarch butterflies were affected by changing climates in New York, specifically in Central Park. We hypothesized that in a changing climate, there would be changes to monarch butterfly phenology and their migration patterns. We predicted that if monarch butterflies are responding to a warmer climate by migrating later, then there would be a later decline in the number of sightings. The data we observed does support our hypothesis. Using iNaturalist data, we observed that most sightings of monarch butterflies were recorded in August. Furthermore, through this study, we’ve determined that citizen data is useful and can lead to significant findings.
We decided to look into how temperature changes during the winter months due to climate change have affected the bee population in NYC through iNaturalist observations.
The battle against climate change is an ever-evolving struggle. To know how we can be more sustainable, I tested if planting more trees can be a starting point for progress.
To purpose of determining the effects of abnormal temperature changes on the migration pattern of Canadian Geese in New York City, we analyzed temperature changes and average number of Canadian Geese.
