The Phenological Community

The Phenological Community

(p.94) Chapter Five The Phenological Community
Time in Ecology

Eric Post

Princeton University Press

This chapter studies how the concept of phenological community relates to the utilization of time by species that co-occur in the local assemblage. It also examines the consequences for phenological community dynamics of differential use of time by co-occurring species. Indeed, a main point of emphasis in this chapter is the dynamic nature of the community in a phenological context. The allocation of time by the individual organism to phenophases within its annual cycle of growth, maintenance, and reproduction determines patterns of interactions in time among species co-occurring in the local assemblage. In the context of phenology, the local community is characterized by a capacity for pronounced variability on both short-term temporal scales (over days) and on longer-term temporal scales (from year to year).

Keywords:   phenological community, time, local assemblage, phenological community dynamics, co-occurring species, phenophases, annual growth cycle, reproduction, phenology, individual organism
