Bio-calendar January

Bio-calendar January

Early Summer - Late Summer

During January there is a transition from early summer to late summer. By late January surface and soil moisture is drying out, the days are warm to hot and the vegetation is starting to dry. The summer eucalypts are in flower and the days get progressively hotter towards the end of the month with the risk of fires increasing.

Shorebirds compete with holiday makers as their habitats come under increasing usage by people.

The following list provides an insight to various life stages for some of the native plants and animals in Victoria during January, of course there will be some variation across different areas of the State.  Please contact SWIFFT so we can add to the list.
