The African Phenology Network brings together phenology researchers throughout the African continent and provides a metadata inventory of current and historic African phenology monitoring programs. The aims of the network are to facilitate communication and research collaboration between scientists, to promote standardised phenology field methods throughout the continent and to publicise results and publications featuring African phenology.

The online presence of the network is currently managed by Emma Bush. We would like to see as wide a group as possible involved in the development and management of this network and are currently setting up a management committee. If you have any suggestions, want to propose an article for the blog, contribute to the publications list or let us know about upcoming events please get in touch by email at emma.bush.ecology [at] gmail.com or via twitter @AfricanPhenoNet.
