Abstract

This proceedings contains 6 papers on the applications of intra-annual analyses in wood formation. The first paper introduces the pinning method from sample collection to anatomical observations on Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies and from cell measurements to data arrangement. The next paper...

Abstract

A summary is presented of the Needle Trace Method (NTM), which was developed in the late 1980s for Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). The NTM is based on the examination of the length and location of needle traces embedded in stemwood rather than in the branchwood of a tree - a needle trace connects...

Abstract

Dendrochronological methods were used to investigate past Saami use of forest resources in northern Sweden, and to reconstruct temporal and spatial aspects of fire disturbances including vegetation successional patterns. This thesis comprises a summary paper, and four research papers (the latter in ...

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

A microcomputer coupled to a video digitizer was used to develop methods for measuring areas of tree rings and for delineating and measuring microscopic anatomical features. A study of Pinus taeda and Fraxinus pennsylvanica samples with known environmental histories showed that computer enhanced...
