BAYSICS in the TUM magazine “Fascination Research”

In the most recent issue of the TUM magazine “Fascination Research”, the science journalist Dr. Monika Offenberger reports on the interdisciplinary research consortium BAYSICS. In the interview “climate change on the doorstep”, Prof. Annette Menzel explains why she initiated the citizen science project BAYSICS and how the BAYSICS data portal works. In this data portal and the corresponding application, interested citizens can put in their observations and thereby directly contribute to climate research. 

The principal investigators of the BAYSICS subgroups each present their research on the topics phenology, alpine tree lines, pollen load and animals in the city: 

  • Prof. Annette Menzel (TU Munich): When the Märzenbecher already start blooming in February
  • Prof. Jörg Ewald (Hochschule Weihenstephan-Triesdorf): Even the mountain forest reacts to climate change
  • Prof. Susanne Jochner-Oette (Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt): Avoiding hay fever
  • Prof. Wolfgang Weisser (TU Munich): Animals in the city
