Phenological Research: Methods for Environmental and Climate by Irene L. Hudson, Marie R. Keatley

By Irene L. Hudson, Marie R. Keatley

As weather switch maintains to dominate the overseas environmental time table, phenology – the examine of the timing of routine organic occasions – has got expanding examine realization, resulting in an rising consensus that phenology should be seen as an ‘early caution method’ for weather switch impact.

A multidisciplinary technology regarding many branches of ecology, geography and distant sensing, phenology up to now has lacked a coherent methodological textual content. This new synthesis, together with contributions from some of the world’s best phenologists, hence fills a severe hole within the present organic literature. offering reviews of present equipment, in addition to detailing novel and rising methodologies, the e-book, with its huge suite of references, offers readers with an figuring out of either the theoretical foundation and the capability functions required to undertake and adapt new analytical and layout methods.

An worthy resource publication for researchers and scholars in ecology and weather switch technology, the publication additionally presents an invaluable reference for practitioners in a number of sectors, together with human future health, fisheries, forestry, agriculture and normal source management.
