Using historical records on phenology and the spatial distribution of British plant species, we investigated whether phenological responses to temperature determine the strength of species’ climatic niche conservatism in time and space.

Our results point to the importance of linking phylogeny, species traits and niche dynamics in space and time for the effective understanding of species-specific responses to climate change.
