About Dr. Elwynn Taylor

Professor Elwynn Taylor is a "BioClimatologist" (studies the adaptations of plants and animals to climate), and was the Iowa State University Extension Climatologist from 1979 until January 2019.

Elwynn Taylor is a student of adaptation to climate. He did his doctoral work at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St Louis, MO. Dr. Taylor's work has taken him to the major climate zones of the planet, and he directed studies conducted on Skylab and other space vehicles.

Any person interested in the nature of climate and how plants and animals adapt will find his work of benefit. His clear explanations of the workings of frost protection, to the avoidance of heat exhaustion, to El Niño (and how it influences the Midwest), will open new levels of understanding our enigmatic environment. He is the climatologist that served on the committee to develop the revised USDA Winter Hardiness Map.
