Title: Comparison of Simulated Stem Temperatures and Observed Air Temperatures with Observed Stem Growth in Forest Openings

Author: Potter, Brian E.; Strong, Terry

Date: 2002

Source: In: 25th Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology 12th Joint Conference on the Applications of Air Pollution Meteorology with A&WMA: 4th Symposium on the Urban Environment; [City, State Unknown; American Meteorological Society]: 107-108

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Phenology, the study of how plant or animal developmental stages relate to the organism's surrounding climate, is a well established discipline with roots dating back more than 2000 years (Hopp and Blair, 1973). For example, correlations are often noted between budbreak or first blossom and integrated air temperature (commonly referred to as heat sums.) The underlying assumption in seeking these correlations is that biological processes proceed at rates proportional to temperature.
