The database provides phenological data on 95 angiosperm species, in plots with natural vegetation and/or in burned plots. We carried out the study in an area of savanna in Brazil. Phenological data can support other studies on these sampled species, involving different aspects of their ecology.


Steps to reproduce

We used 10 plots (5 x 5 m) installed in “campo cerrado” physiognomy, in the Santa Bárbara Ecological Station, located in the municipality of Águas de Santa Bárbara, São Paulo state, southeastern Brazil. Half of these plots was burned in Aug/2013 and the other half was kept intact as a control. For one year (Sep/2013 to Aug/2014), we collected monthly data on the presence of sprouting (new branches or new unexpanded leaves), flowers at anthesis, and fruits (immature and mature) in all angiosperm individuals present in the plots.
