A Word Challenge

Hello All,

Dr. Thursday thought you might be able to help him with this word challenge and asked me to pass it along to you. Gilbertgirl? Margaret? Anyone? :)

Category: biology. I am seeking a general or class-word which means
"seasonal change", which might include words like "hibernate" and
"estivate", or things like "deciduous trees"; there are some animals
which change color or fur-thickness, etc depending on the season. Is
there such a word, and if so, what is it? If there isn't, suggest one
from the classical sources (Greek/Latin).
