Phenology of Different Species

The phenology of different species present in a community may differ from each other significantly. It is these phenological changes which give a definite look to a community. Aspection is the appearance or aspect of the community as a whole at different seasons. We shall further elaborate this point by an example. There is a community having four different plant species. And these four component species flower in the months of January, April, July and August successively.

So the community has a characteristic appearance during the different months of the year. And in the subsequent year too, the same pattern can be seen. But now if somehow another species, i.e., the fifth species comes in this community, and it flowers in June, the whole appearance the community may be markedly different now. After going through the above example it may be clear to you now that the appearance of two different communities may be different.
