Advances in Phenology
  • Description
  • Author(s) Information

Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate, as well as habitat factors (such as elevation).The word, coined by the Belgian botanist Charles Morren in 1849, is derived from the Greek φα?νω (phainō), "to show, to bring to light, make to appear" + λ?γο? (logos), amongst others "study, discourse, reasoning" and indicates that phenology has been principally concerned with the dates of first occurrence of biological events in their annual cycle.

In the present book twelve typical literatures about Phenology published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on historical climatology, climate change, temporal resolution, Beech phenology, Forest water balance, etc. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in phenology as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
