Central Park Bioblitz

Thursday, October 31, 2013

On August 26 and 27th, scientists and students descended on Central Park and worked around the clock to tally the species of flora and fauna found there. Called the Bioblitz, this census was developed by the Central Park Conservancy and Macaulay Honor College at CUNY to measure the park’s biodiversity. Amy Berkov, a tropical ecologist and Mary Pearl, conservationist and Associate Dean and Chief Academic Officer at CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College tell us about the Bioblitz's findings.
