About this book

Developed from an IUFRO meeting in Washington State, USA in July 1997, it describes the latest achievements and challenges in tree ring research from around the world. Contents include: Analyzing radial growth processes; Analyzing anatomical and structural features; Tropical tree ring analysis; Tree rings and historical aspects; and Tree ring analysis and environmental interactions.

"Presents 19 chapters discussing recent advances in the biology of tree-ring analysis. The papers result from a 1997 conference sponsored by the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations. They are divided into five sections devoted to the analysis of radial growth processes, anatomical and structural features, historical analysis, environmental interactions, and a section focusing on tropical trees. Some specific topics include a mechanistic cambium activity model, climactic influences in the tropics, the periodicity of cambial growth, and applications in forest monitoring."--SciTech Book News
