Applications of dendrochronology in Agroforestry and climate change research uri icon

abstract

  • Dendrochronology or examining tree rings as a method for scientific dating provides accurate dating because in principle each ring represents a year in a trees life. Seasonality in climate is the main driver for growth-ring formation and many tree species in the tropics are growing under a seasonal climate and hence experiencing cambial dormancy. Depending on climate seasonality and species, formation of rings can range from indistinct to distinct from annual to bi annual
