Description "Pheno" as in Phenology: Phenology is the study of seasonal events in habitats. As part of the Phenoclim program we follow the dates of bud-break, flowering and leaf development in the spring; color change and leaf-fall in autumn. Ten species of trees and plants are studied in our area: downy birch, silver birch, ash, hazel, lilac, colt's foot, rowan, primrose, larch and spruce.

"Clim" as in Climate: The Alps are a climate zone of particular interest in the study of climate change since the increase in temperature in this area in the last century was 1.4 degrees as compared to 0.7 degrees worldwide.

Also, the great diversity of microclimates determined by altitude and slope aspect makes this area a particularly rich area of study. A network of Phenoclim temperature stations has been placed at key points throughout the massif. Purpose The seasonal rhythms of living things, especially plants, are entirely dependent on temperature. If the spring temperature is a few degrees higher than normal, plants can begin budding and flowering several weeks earlier than usual. These events can therefore be valuable indicators of the impact of climate change on vegetation. This is what is at stake in the Phenoclim program. ? Research question

  • 10 plants are followed.
  • 3 of each must be observed within an area of 500m, plants must be 5m a part and reach a certain size
  • the site must be described using a list of characteristics
  • Five events are monitored (sprouts (?), leaves, flowers, change of color, falling leaves). During these data collection periods, sites must be visited every 8 days
  • For each of these events, several data must be collected ...

Description[edit source]

"Pheno" as in Phenology: Phenology is the study of seasonal events in habitats. As part of the Phenoclim program we follow the dates of bud-break, flowering and leaf development in the spring; color change and leaf-fall in autumn. Ten species of trees and plants are studied in our area: downy birch, silver birch, ash, hazel, lilac, colt's foot, rowan, primrose, larch and spruce.

A network of Phenoclim temperature stations has been placed at key points throughout the massif.

Purpose.[edit source]

The seasonal rhythms of living things, especially plants, are entirely dependent on temperature. If the spring temperature is a few degrees higher than normal, plants can begin budding and flowering several weeks earlier than usual. These events can therefore be valuable indicators of the impact of climate change on vegetation. This is what is at stake in the Phenoclim program.
