Data from: Phenological mismatch with trees reduces wildflower carbon budgets

J. Mason Heberling, Caitlin McDonough MacKenzie, Jason D. Fridley, Susan Kalisz & Richard B. Primack
Interacting species can respond differently to climate change, causing unexpected consequences. Many understory wildflowers in deciduous forests leaf out and flower in the spring when light availability is highest before overstory canopy closure. Therefore, different phenological responses by understory and overstory species to increased spring temperature could have significant ecological implications. Pairing contemporary data with historical observations initiated by Henry David Thoreau (1850s), we found that overstory tree leaf out is more responsive to increased...
