Comparing two measures of phenological synchrony in a predator–prey interaction: simpler works better

Jip J.C. Ramakers, Phillip Gienapp & Marcel E. Visser
1. Global climate change has sparked a vast research effort into the demographic and evolutionary consequences of mismatches between consumer and resource phenology. Many studies have used the difference in peak dates to quantify phenological synchrony (match in dates, MD), but this approach has been suggested to be inconclusive, since it does not incorporate the temporal overlap between the phenological distributions (match in overlap, MO). 2. We used 24 years of detailed data on the...
