Phenology in Productivity Studies

  • H. Lieth
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 1)


Phenology is a scientific field which exists on the borderline between floristics — ecology and meteorology, especially agrometeorology. The field is well established. Its concepts have been continuously applied and discussed for over a century, and its importance in agrometeorology is still increasing. Contemporary phenological studies have a variety of connections to many other scientific disciplines, a wide range of research goals and, therefore, different meanings to individual investigators. Phenology continues to undergo a metamorphosis with time as new applications and techniques are developed.
