How are vegetation growing seasons around the world?

We identified the most relevant vegetation seasonal patterns based on spectral analysis of NDVI time series. Most of global land surface (93.18%) showed one intra-annual growing season whereas bi- and trimodal patterns occupy lower area (5.58%), mainly in tropical and arid regions along with agricultural areas. The highest values of amplitude and stability were found at Northern Hemisphere high latitudes whereas lowest values were located in tropical and arid regions. High presence of pluri-annual cycles was found in water-limited areas of Australia. See more in this article
