      This story focuses on the first-flowering date of 385 species of British
      plants. According to the study in south-central England, the date has
      advanced by 4-1/2 to 15 days in the past decade.

      The story also mentions something I don't recall seeing before: German
      studies have shown that alpine plants are moving higher into the mountains.

      Also, other studies have shown that the warming climate has affected
      insects. Plants pollinated by insects have shifted their first-flowering
      date more radically than those that are wind-pollinated.
