Phenological observation networks have been implemented in many countries to monitor how the timing of plant seasonal life cycles varies in space and time. Data are used to model the responses of plant phenology to climatic factors and to predict changes associated with future climate warming. The quality of these predictions depends critically on the quality of the underlying data.
