Abstract: Phenology and energy availability have previously been linked to species diversity and distributions. Birds are important elements of biodiversity and can act as indicators of changes in the broad state of the wildlife and of the countryside. Here we investigate the potential of using variation and trends in phenology derived from Spot VEGETATION over Europe as indicator of the status of farmland birds, potentially contributing to a monitoring tool for biodiversity.
