Abstract

This study investigated the removal of extraneous colour from increment cores of conifers prior to reflected-light image analysis of tree rings. Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) in central New Mexico (USA) was chosen for this study. Peroxide bleaching was used as a pretreatment to remove extraneous ...

Abstract

A comparison of dendrochronological methods was made for ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) growing in the Gus Pearson Natural Area, established in north-central Arizona in 1908.

Abstract

Two cores from each of three Pinus ponderosa trees (about 300 yr old) were collected from semi-arid southeastern Arizona. Ten last-formed tracheids from each year during 1911-30 were analysed by image analysis. The sign tests of the first differences in yearly measurements of two cores showed that...

Abstract

Some 242 fire scars in cross-sections of Pinus ponderosa taken from trees in SE Arizona were dated using dendrochronological methods. The sample material covers the period 1452 to 1979. The year of a fire scar, and when possible the position of a fire scar within the tree ring, were determined...

Abstract

A comparison of precipitation records with ring widths in Pinus ponderosa showed that precipitation was a significant factor affecting natural growth, but it was not possible to draw reliable conclusions about precipitation patterns from growth patterns.KEYWORDS: Dendrochronology \ Growth relation...
