Timing of seasonal plant development can affect biotic interactions and plant fitness. Phenology is governed largely by temperature and may therefore be affected by global climate warming, making this an important area of research. Several factors in addition to temperature may cause differences in phenology. We studied the influence of local environment, plant size, and reproductive effort on shoot emergence and flowering time of 290 individuals of Actaea spicata (Ranunculaceae), distributed… CONTINUE READING
