The African Phenology Network brings together ecologists and meteorologists throughout the continent in coordinated long-term study of essential biological cycles, such as flowering or fruit-bearing.
The network enables research collaborations between scientists, widens access to existing research data and grows African leadership in the field. Our ultimate aim is to understand the climatic drivers of plant productivity and reproduction across forested Africa, and to provide an open evidence-base to decision-makers looking to predict and mitigate the effects of climate change in the region.
The network is managed and led by a group of Early Career Researchers who make up the Steering Group. We would like to see as wide a group as possible involved in the development and management of our network.
