Phenological responses to climate-change in trees


Co-Conveners: Eran Raveh, ARO, and Or Sperling, ARO

Climate change for agriculture, be it global warming or cultivation of deciduous tree species in warmer climates, challenges the productivity and sustainability of farms worldwide. We propose a session concerning the fundamental physiological changes plants go through during climatic changes (e.g., dormancy duration and senescence time) and their applied implications on farmers (e.g., alternate bearing, bud drop, and fruit ripening).
