Abstract

Phenology is defined as the study of the timing of recurring biological phases, the causes of their timing with regard to biotic and abiotic forces, and the interrelation among phases of the same or different species. In other words it is the study of plant and animal life cycle events, which are triggered by environmental changes, especially temperature. The word “phenology” is derived from the Greek Phainomai, which means “to appear” or “come into view”, and indicates that phenology has been principally concerned with the dates of first occurrence of natural events in their annual cycle.
