The temperature dependence of EPR frequencies is studied theoretically for pure and pseudo-one dimensional Heisenberg magnets by means of Mori's theory of generalized Brownian motions. In a system with uniaxial symmetry, simple expressions for resonance frequencies are obtained. It is seen that the resonance frequencies are shifted from the Zeeman frequency when the magnetic susceptibility is anisotropic. Fisher's classical spin model is used to calculate the spin correlation functions. The anisotropy of the magnetic susceptibility is found to be enhanced by an effect of the short range order. The pseudo-one dimensional systems are treated with the help of the mean field approximation to interchain interactions. The result is reduced to that of a pure-one dimensional system, when the interchain interactions are absent. The effects of interchain interactions are negligible for antiferromagnets even near the Néel point, whereas those for ferromagnets are divergent near the Curie point. Nagata and Tazuke's expressions for a g-shift can be obtained from the present theory in an approximation.
