International Phenological Gardens of Europe

About this Project, Network or Partner
The International Phenological Gardens (IPG) are a European and individual network within the Phenology Study Group of the International Society of Biometeorology (ISB). The idea of the International Phenological Gardens was to do large-scale and standardized phenological observations. Therefore all IPGs are situated in similar surroundings (mainly plain surface with meadows and some trees), they have a detailed observation-guide and they are professionally looked after by the staff of the institutes, botanical gardens etc. In order to eliminate the hereditary variability, cloned species of all trees and shrubs have been planted in the IPGs.
