Maya Bosshard successfully defended her MSc!


In her work “Comparing historic and contemporary flowering phenology of plants in northwest Switzerland in the light of climate change from 1860 to today”, she compiled historic phenological data from a very detailed manuscript of Franz Eduard Fries (1811 – 1879, doctor in Sissach, Baselland, Northwest Switzerland) and made extensive field observations in the same area.  She then compared how flowering times have shifted across species, habitats, and life forms over the last 160 years. Congratulations, Maya!
