On behalf of the International Society of Biometeorology Phenology Commission (ISB-PC), I am pleased to welcome you to the Phenology 2018 Conference website.  This will be the fourth international phenology conference sponsored by our Commission, and our venues now span four continents and both hemispheres!  Phenological research continues to expand in relevance, volume, and applications, especially in relation to global climate change. I hope that you are making plans to participate, and look forward to hearing all about your research progress while we are in Melbourne.


Vice-Chair, ISB-PC; 
Immediate Past President, International Society of Biometeorology
