Fika will be served, welcome! 

We have abundant evidence that warmer springs are causing spring phenological events in high latitude environments to advance, with some concern

that previously synchronous trophic interactions will become mismatched. I will examine what we can learn by taking a spatial approach, such as the

relationship between temperature and optimum timing and the potential for mismatch to be spatially buffered. I will discuss analyses of citizen science

datasets and work arising from a 200km transect looking at a simple woodland food chain in Scotland.
