Abstract
By means of a linear tendency estimation scheme and correlation analysis a study is undertaken of change in Zhengzhou climate and phonological response of woody plants thereto, together with relations between meteorological elements (rainfall, sunshine length and mean temperature) and phenological periods investigated. And later, using a least squares polynomial, a fit expression is constructed for the peak phase of flowering in relation to mean temperature over the previous 3 months. Results show that mean temperature is the critical climate factor to the phonological response of the trees except for leaf-falling phase in autumn; temperature inference of phenology has a clear ecological implication in exploring the relation between climate change and phonological response, with which to plan agricultural undertaking and monitor ecological environment on a scientific basis.
