Description
Stan Temple, Nelson Institute, discusses Aldo Leopold's daily journals recording observations of seasonal events, especially those of when plants bloomed and birds migrated, occurring at his shack on the Leopold farm, which was the setting for many essays in A Sand County Almanac. Comparing Leopold's historical observations of hundreds of natural events to recent records clarifies how climate change is affecting the ecological community.
