Phenology of Atlantic rain forest trees: A comparative study
This paper describes the phenology of leaf, flower, and fruit phenology in the Atlantic rain forests of southeastern Brazil. For 17 months, we observed the phenological patterns of trees from two Atlantic forest types at ...
Modeling plant phenology database: Blending near-surface remote phenology with on-the-ground observations
Phenology research handles multifaceted information that needs to be organized and made promptly accessed by scientific community. We propose the conceptual design and implementation of a database to store, manage, and ...
Modeling Plant Phenology Database: Blending Near-surface Remote Phenology With On-the-ground Observations
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BVAMSTERDAM, 2016)
Multivariate cyclical data visualization using radial visual rhythms: A case study in phenology analysis
Phenology is a traditional science that investigates the periodic phenomena of plants and animals and their relations to environmental conditions. Typically plant phenological studies are based on observations made by ...
Land Surface Phenology in the Tropics: The Role of Climate and Topography in a Snow-Free Mountain
Leaf phenology represents a major temporal component of ecosystem functioning, and understanding the drivers of seasonal variation in phenology is essential to understand plant responses to climate change. We assessed the ...
Reproductive phenology of coastal plain Atlantic forest vegetation: comparisons from seashore to foothills
The diversity of tropical forest plant phenology has called the attention of researchers for a long time. We continue investigating the factors that drive phenological diversity on a wide scale, but we are unaware of the ...
Reproductive phenology of Atlantic forest tree species in Brazil: An eleven year study
This paper describes the reproductive phenorhythms of tree species in a tropical seasonal lowland forest in Southeastern Brazil. Every two weeks, five individuals of 41 species were observed for the occurrence of flowering ...
Deriving vegetation indices for phenology analysis using genetic programming
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-03-01)
Plant phenology studies recurrent plant life cycle events and is a key component for understanding the impact of climate change. To increase accuracy of observations, new technologies have been applied for phenological ...
Do conspecific populations exhibit divergent phenological patterns? A study case of widespread savanna species
Widespread savanna tree species can grow and survive at sites that diverge in water availability and seasonality, thus these species may be able to adjust their phenology in response to site variations. Here we evaluated ...
Plant phenological research enhances ecological restoration
While phenology data (the timing of recurring biological events) has been used to explain and predict patterns related to global change, and to address applied environmental issues, it has not been clearly identified as ...
