At present, phenological studies achieved a prominent position in monitoring and predicting the timing of recurrent life cycle events. Phenology also provide a better understanding to manage and conserve environment. This article provides a useful informa- tion how pheonology, a multidisciplinary science plays an important role in conservational biology. We tried to explain changes in plant phenology caused by rising temperature, their impacts on species diversity and plant–animal interactions, and how conservation efforts could be improving in relation to plant resource organization. We listed the effects of phonological shifts and examine how phenological research can contribute to estimate and manage the land-use change and other natural and anthropogenic disturbances, such as fire, exotic and invasive species. Various instruments used for monitoring phenological activities at species-rich area are also discussed here.
