Plant phenology reveals important information about the physiological status of plants, especially in relation to water availability. In many seasonally dry regions, such as the Mediterranean region, low water availability not only affects plant phenology, but also increases plant flammability and, thus, the likelihood of wildfire occurrence, suggesting that the phenological status of living vegetation can be used as an effective proxy to estimate fire risk for management purposes.
