Plant phenology transect at NPP sites

Laura Huenneke
The phenological stage of all perennial plant species on the 15 NPP sites is recorded on a monthly basis. This allows us to track the influence of weather and of site differences on plant reproduction. The boundaries of the (80m x 80m) study plot are walked and each individual plant of any perennial species in a 1-m belt is examined and its phenology noted (non-reproductive, in bud, in flower, in fruit, or dormant).
