Annual Cycle

An annual cycle refers to growth and changes that occur predictably during a year's time. The most common example of this is in plant growth. In the fall many plants become dormant; they lose their leaves and growth slows or stops. This continues through the winter. In spring, trees bud and put out new leaves or flowers - growth resumes continuing through the summer. This cycle repeats every year without change making it an annual cycle.
