Seed mast is an important aspect of the phenology of many tree species, with potential cascading impacts across food webs in forests. To date, the aspect of masting is widely ignored when recording phenology measurements. This project aims to integrate the recording of standardized mast observation into existing phenology networks (e.g. PhaenoNet, Phenowald, PhenoRanger) and field surveys. The recorded data will be made publically available on the already established platform of MastWeb hosted at WSL.
