Abstract. First phenological observations have been performed in Germany already in the 18th century. The onset dates of characteristic phases of plant development (phenological phases) are observed and recorded. Today, Germany's national meteorological service (Deutscher Wetterdienst, DWD) maintains a dense phenological observation network and a database with phenological observations. The data are used in many applications, esp. for advisory activities to agriculture or pollen dispersion information.
