Abstract: This paper focuses on a smart and cost-effective plant introduction system. Mangyshlak Experimental Botanical Garden, based on the introduction research in Kazakhstan, created a phenological database of relational type. Using this database for the first time, we developed a software named 'Feno-S'. It includes 137 information fields (symbolic, numeric, logical, and temporal types) and 5,342 records by year for 536 taxa from five systematic divisions, eight classes, 11 subclasses, 24 superorders, 49 orders, eight suborders, 52 families, and 108 genera. This software is designed for data input and search, mathematical processing and analysis, building and printing histograms, exporting to various text and graphic formats of specified taxonomic, bioecological, phenological information. Further implementation of this software significantly improves the analysis of seasonal rhythms of plant development. As a consequence, it reduces the cost of plant introduction as biologically stable.

Keywords: phenology; computer program; 'Feno-S'; composition; structure; databases.
