Richard Primack has used Henry David Thoreau’s notes among other data to confirm the effects of a changing climate on flowering and leafing times, bird migrations, and other animal behavior. Hear how he uncovered clues from a variety of historical sources to analyze and investigate the ecological impacts of climate change. Richard recently received an Alexander von Humboldt Research Award and is the author of Walden Warming: Climate Change Comes to Thoreau’s Woods
