We developed five tree ring-width chronologies from one fir (Abies georgei) and four spruce (Picea brachytyla) stands near the upper treeline in the central Hengduan Mountain, northwestern Yunnan, China. Similar growth patterns and significant correlations are embodied among the five chronologies. A principal component analysis for the four spruce chronologies indicated that the first component accounts for 54.8% of the total variance over the period 1750–2003. Climate–growth response analysis… CONTINUE READING
