Abstract

Regional phenological data collection networks were initiated in eastern NA in the early 1960s, using cloned lilacs and several species of honeysuckle. The paper reviews research projects that use first leaf data. The results of such studies have demonstrated the potential of phenology as an efficient monitor of global change.
