Weather + Phenology: How Do They Relate?
The temperature impacts the phenology cycle of plants especially during these critical season changes. At this time in Indiana, the temp is getting low enough to cause leaves to start changing color and fall off their trees. If there is a drastic change in the typical expected temp for this month or next, it could lead to this process happening sooner than normal, or later than normal. This in turn affects the life cycle timing for many insects and animals who use these plants as a food source.
