Welcome to the Network's phenology recording system. Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and inter-annual variations in climate. 

Please register as a recorder and log your phenology observations for any vascular plant. Network members are automatically registered. You can then view results from around the country. Instructions for phenology recorders are also provided here:

Species to watch out for this summer 

Northern rata - Metrosideros robusta
