Dr. David Inouye is a biology professor at the University of Maryland, and
has done research each summer for 42 years at the Rocky Mountain Biological
Laboratory in Colorado.  His work focuses on how the timing and abundance of
flowering by about 100 species of wildflowers has been responding to the
changing climate, and how those changes are affecting the population biology
of the flowers as well as their interactions with pollinators such as
hummingbirds, bumble bees,  and hover flies.
