    Most tropical regions are facing historical difficulties of generating biologically reconstructed long-term climate records. Dendrochronology (tree-ring studies) is a powerful tool to develop high-resolution and exactly dated proxies for climate reconstruction. In particular, dendroclimatological research is important in understanding both spatial and temporal characteristics of climate influences on tree growth. This project investigated the relationship between climate (precipitation and temperature) and tree rings, and showed its potential for climate reconstruction. Owing to the seasonal variation in rainfall, we expected the formation of annual growth rings in the wood of the forest of Wondo Genet. The project also carried out annual ring assessment and described the basic anatomical features of growth ring boundaries of the species under study. Wood disc samples of 15 trees belo.. View More»
