Data sets

Phenology data set of plants and birds and other taxonomic groups, as well as agrarian activities and abiotic phenomena from Latvia, 1970-2018 Gunta Kalvāne, Andis Kalvans, and Andris Ģērmanis

Short summary
A phenological (seasonal occurrences) data set in Latvia, northern Europe, is presented. It includes phenological phases of eight taxonomic groups such as timing of leaf unfolding, bird migration, and leaf senescence as well as weather phenomena and agrarian activities from 1979 to 2018. The data provide direct and compelling evidence of climate change like earlier spring blossom and delayed autumn phases of some migratory birds and plants in recent years.
