The star is easily located and indicates the northern direction. Lightning can strike one place multiple times.
The Empire State Building gets struck around 25 times each year. The website has a list of trees to choose from. Participants would check the trees every week or once in two weeks and note down the presence of buds, flowers, unripe and ripe fruits, and young and mature leaves. They would have to create a log-in account to feed the data, including the date and location details, online.
The information would generate a continuous record across the country and help understand the regional variations in flowering and fruiting time for a particular plant species, said Quader. The information, when correlated with data like the rainfall, weather and altitude of a region, would reveal the influence of interannual climate variation on the plant lifecycle. To ascertain the credibility of the data, participants would be encouraged to send photographs of the trees they track.

This would also help avoid the risks involved in species identification, said Quader. The next step for NCBS researchers is to rope in students. The Central Board of Secondary Education mandates schools to offer a course in environment, in which students have to prepare projects. But very few teachers have the required skill or tools.
