Ireland's National Phenology Network (IE-NPN)

Climate Change Research Programme (CCRP) 2007 - 2013 Report Series No. 23, September 2013

Year: 2013

The study links increasing air temperature, particularly in Spring, to the earlier emergence of leaves which contributes to a longer growing season. However, trends in autumn, towards later leaf fall for example, were much less obvious possibly as day-length is a stronger environmental cue than temperature.
