The flowering phenology of 192 woody species in 14 plots of Mediterranean-type shrublands in Western Andalusia (SW Spain) was studied throughout one year. The plots accounted for a wide range of ecological features (e.g., altitude: 50–1350 m, mean annual rainfall: 624–2196 mm, mean annual temperature: 13.8–18.2°C) over a maximum distance of 220 km. The relationships between both length and date of flowering and several environmental characteristics were analyzed by stepwise multiple regressions. Flowering date was found to be positively correlated to plot altitude. Flowering length proved to be inversely correlated to continentality, measured as the distance to the coast. This last phenological variable was also coupled to the orientation of the plots. The shrublands were grouped on the basis of their level of flowering seasonality and of the timing of the flowering peak. Even in the plots with the most seasonal flowering, some common species were observed to flower in harsh seasons. The implications for plant pollination of the analyzed phenological variations are discussed.
