Flowering time and warming

It is a prevailing view that species that flower late have  flowering dates that are less sensitive to warming that species that flower early (See Wolkovich et al. 2012, Nature). If I do a quick analysis of the earliest and latest flowering species in the Flint Hills, this actually isn’t true. The y-axis is a new and more complex way of of quantifying sensitivity, and I wish to be discrete…but this is pretty cool. Image
