Understanding your results
Your data is very important. Analysing and interpreting your data can help learning about how trees are part of the wider environment and how they can act as indicators of human impact on the environment.
You can also use your results to:
- Plot charts of how the key events of the trees match the weather during the year
- On a map you can draw arrows to show how key events change across Europe over time
- Make a video diary of the changes to the trees
- Have a board display which can be updated with results and photographs from both your results and across Europe!
Trees are useful indicators of a changing environment, changes that are influenced by us. By exploring tree Phenology over a longer period we can find out if the timing of events is changing and why this might be. The activities below will help you do this.
