Phenology is events taking place in tree like flowering, fruiting etc. This study site was Bangalore. Studies reveal the interaction of animals with respect to events like fruiting and flowering. In the trees that have been observed, Michelia champaka was having fruits, so the majority of animals visited this tree. Muntingia calabura, Nerium oleander and Lantana camara were mostly visited by pollinators like butterflies, bees etc.
