ABSTRACT - (Fructification phenology of native plant species and the forest restoration in Fernando de Noronha archipelago, Pernambuco State, Brazil). The annual pattern of fructification phenology of 23 native species of trees and bushes of Fernando de Noronha, Pernambuco State, Brazil was characterized with the aim of guiding the seed collection towards the implementation of a local restoration program. It was found that most species (74%) presented higher absolute frequencies of fructification during the rainy season (January to July) as opposed to 26% during the dry season, and the fructification lasted, on average, one month and a half. The Spearman correlation coefficient indicated a positive correlation between the studied phenophases and the precipitation. This kind of study is strategic for planning the seed collection and seedling production for restoration programs, especially in places where the process of Ecological Restoration is just beginning and still lacks information, such as Fernando de Noronha.
