Abstract: The method used by local and indigenous peoples for predicting rainfall and other weather conditions solely on the basis of bio-indicators – the phenology of plants and behavior of animals – is coined as a new term: Presage Biology. Some of these activities of floral and faunal diversity are described in their application to predict oncoming rain, based a literature review as well as personal observations of present author as well as other reference sources pertaining to India and different parts of the world.
