From the website:

The cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C., have been arriving ever earlier over the past 100 years--just another indication of how global warming is altering the timing of the seasons. All sorts of signs of spring are arriving ever earlier, and summer and fall are also undergoing changes.

What do these changes mean for plants, hibernating animals, migrating birds, or honeybees and other pollinating insects? Which parts of the world are in for the biggest changes? And what can we expect from further climate change?
