Phenology, the study of annually recurring life cycle events such as the timing of migrations and flowering, can provide particularly sensitive indicators of climate change. Changes in phenology may be important to ecosystem function because the level of response to climate change may vary across functional groups and multiple trophic levels. The decoupling of phenological relationships will have important ramifications for trophic interactions, altering food-web structures and leading to… 
Trophic level asynchrony in rates of phenological change for marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments
Recent changes in the seasonal timing (phenology) of familiar biological events have been one of the most conspicuous signs of climate change. However, the lack of a standardized approach to
Climate-driven changes in the recruitment success of marine invertebrates: the role of food supply and temperature
TLDR
The combined effects of food limitation and temperature on larval performance of S. balanoides and A. modestus were focused on to assess if there were any differences between species responses to potential low food environments and also explored whether changes in temperature could exacerbate any larval responses to low food.
Effects of climate and demography on reproductive phenology of a harvested marine fish population
TLDR
Investigating how climate and population demographic structure jointly affect spawning phenology of a fish species of major commercial importance: walleye pollock finds that the mean date of spawning has varied by over 3 weeks throughout the last >3 decades, and suggests demographic shifts associated with sustainable harvest rates could shift the mean spawning date 7 days later and shorten the spawning season by 9 days.
Long‐term change in the phenology of spring phytoplankton: species‐specific responses to nutrient enrichment and climatic change
TLDR
Long-term physical, chemical and biological data from Windermere were analysed in order to assess the relative effects of a number of coincident pressures on the phenology of two spring diatom taxa, and patterns of change in phenology and ecological pressures were markedly nonlinear in time.
Climate Change and Phenological Mismatch in Trophic Interactions Among Plants, Insects, and Vertebrates

TLDR
This work reviews whether this continuously ongoing phenomenon, also known as trophic asynchrony, is becoming more common under ongoing rapid climate change, and investigates limited evidence of phenological mismatch in mutualistic interactions.
Anthropogenic climate change impacts on copepod trait biogeography
TLDR
The changes in species range vary according to copepod traits with the largest effects found to occur in the cooling, freshening area in the subpolar North Atlantic south of Greenland and in an area of significant warming along the Scotian shelf.
Phenological shifts of three interacting zooplankton groups in relation to climate change
TLDR
Changes in the phenology of these organisms raise the concerns on the declining state of fish stocks, which could potentially be exacerbated by gelatinous zooplankton outbreaks, and may ultimately lead to trophic dead ends.
The effects of climate change on species composition, succession and phenology: a case study
TLDR
This study correlates changes in environmental parameters to shifts in species composition in a subtidal community in Newcastle, NH through comparison of two, 3-year periods separated by 23 years.
Toward a phenological mismatch in estuarine pelagic food web?
TLDR
Modifications in fish and zooplankton phenology among inter-shift periods are depicted and the potential effects of the resulting mismatches at a community scale are discussed to questions the efficiency and potentially the viability of nursery function of the Gironde estuary.

Ecological Consequences of Recent Climate Change
Abstract: Global climate change is frequently considered a major conservation threat. The Earth's climate has already warmed by 0.5° C over the past century, and recent studies show that it is

TLDR
Results from the experiments indicate photoperiodic control of germination and/or growth of diatom resting spores in phytoplankton blooms, similar to the regulation of several growth processes in higher plants and macroalgae.

Phytoplankton models generally do not consider the initial phases of seed stocks and deal only with the vegetative growth phase, ignoring life history strategies. Some quantitatively important
Fingerprints of global warming on wild animals and plants
TLDR
A consistent temperature-related shift is revealed in species ranging from molluscs to mammals and from grasses to trees, suggesting that a significant impact of global warming is already discernible in animal and plant populations.

TLDR
Evidence is provided of large-scale changes in the biogeography of calanoid copepod crustaceans in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean and European shelf seas related to both the increasing trend in Northern Hemisphere temperature and the North Atlantic Oscillation.
