Predicting the flowering times of angiosperm taxa is a goal of mounting importance in the face of future climate change, with applications not only in plant biology and ecology, but also horticulture, agriculture, and invasive species management.
The Plant Phenology Ontology (PPO) was originally developed to integrate phenology observations of whole plants across different global observation networks.
Drought‐tolerant plants are increasingly recognized as a resource to mitigate the consequences

Herbarium specimens are increasingly recognized as an important resource for conservation
A major challenge in articulating human dimensions of climate change lies in translating global climate forecasts into impact assessments that are intuitive to the public.
Sunflower is a unique model species for assessing crop responses and adaptation to climate change. We provide an initial assessment of how climate change may influence the abiotic and biotic environment of cultivated sunflower across the world.
Major international herbaria, natural history museums and universities have recently begun to digitise their collections to facilitate studies and improve access to collections.
