Ecological Modelling

An integrated phenology modelling framework in r

We present the phenor r package and modelling framework. The framework leverages measurements of vegetation phenology from four common phenology observation datasets, the PhenoCam network, the USA National Phenology Network, the Pan European Phenology Project, MODIS phenology combined with (global) retrospective and projected climate data.

Productivity of North American grasslands is increased under future climate scenarios despite rising aridity

We explore the potential responses of North American grasslands to climate change using a new, data-informed vegetation–hydrological model, a network of high-frequency ground observations across a wide range of grassland ecosystems and CMIP5 climate projections.
