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 ...
Current issues in tropical phenology: a synthesis
We retrace the development of tropical phenology research, compare temperate phenology study to that in the tropics and highlight the advances currently being made in this flourishing discipline. The synthesis draws attention ...
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 ...
Phenological patterns and reproductive success of Ceiba pentandra (Bombacaceae) in tropical dry and wet forests of Costa Rica
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2008)
Phenological aspects of Syngonanthus elegans (Bong.) Ruhl. (Eriocaulaceae) from Serra do Cipo - MG. Brazil
(Inst Tecnologia Parana, 1997-01-01)
S. elegans (Eriocaulaceae) is known in Brazil as star flower and is used economically for ornamental purposes. The fact that there is no control over its collection, brings about great damage to its population. Thus the ...
Linking plant phenology to conservation biology
Phenology has achieved a prominent position in current scenarios of global change research given its role inmonitoring and predicting the timing of recurrent life cycle events. However, the implications of phenology to ...
