"Real Life Science with Dandelions and Project BudBurst."
Johnson, Katherine A. “Real Life Science with Dandelions and Project BudBurst.”Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education, vol. 17, no. 1, 1 Mar. 2016, suny-wes.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/permalink/01SUNY_WES/ak5uok/crossref10.1128%252Fjmbe.v17i1.1064. "Project BudBurst is a national citizen-science project that tracks bloom times and other phenological data for plants across the country. Data from Project BudBurst are being used to measure the effects of climate change. Students can participate in this project by watching any of the plants on the list, including the common dandelion, which makes the program easy and accessible to everyone.
