Definizione

A segment of ecology focusing on the study of periodic plant and animal life-cycle events that are influenced by climate and seasonal change in the environment. 1

Nota

[...] phenology provides a constructive means in which to understand the relationship between the grapevine, and the environmental variability.
[...] Out of all cultivated plants, the grapevine is considered to be one of the most responsive to its surrounding environment [...]. As a result, grapevine phenology has become a central tool for a number of studies. Research that has become ever important, especially for the ‘new world’ wine producing countries, revolves around determining the grape-growing potential of new and different environments [...]. Essentially, an understanding of the phenology is imperative for determining the ability of a region to produce a cultivar within the confines of its climatic regime [...]. 2

Contesto

Over the last two decades, the phenology of grapevines in Bordeaux has tended towards earlier phenological events, a shortening of phenological intervals, and a lengthening of the growing season. 3
