Aldo Leopold Foundation: The Study of Phenology

Baraboo, Wisconsin - United States

Phenology is a segment of ecology focusing on the study of periodic plant and animal life-cycle events that are influenced by climate and seasonal change in the environment. Skunks emerging from winter dens, sandhill cranes trumpeting their return, and seeds ripening are all examples of annual phenological events. Phenology is derived from the Greek word phaino meaning to show or appear, indicating its principal concern with the dates of first occurrence of natural events in their annual cycle.

Remote Sensing Phenology
United States

Remote Sensing Phenology uses satellites to track seasonal changes in vegetation on regional, continental, and global scales. Because the most frequently used satellite sensors for monitoring phenological events have relatively large "footprints" on the land surface, they gather data about entire ecosystems or regions rather than individual species. Remote sensing phenology can reveal broad-scale phenological trends that would be difficult, if no
