  • Six months phenology observation records: An insight from 17 schools

    HEROES(http://www.bpn.gov.bt), a school based phenology monitoring system in Bhutan, was operationalised in February, 2014. Since then, students from 17 schools have been closely monitoring , recording and reporting plant’s phenological event such as timing for budburst, young leaf, flower bud, open flower, ripe fruit and leaf fall. Within a time frame of six months, HEROES has collected over 30000 phenology records. Observations were reported for 30 species of trees, 10 species of shrubs and 10 species of herbs. On average, each school has reported observation of 120 days since February, 2014.
