Automated quantification of intra-annual density fluctuations using microdensity profiles of mature Pinus taeda in a replicated irrigation experiment

We developed a new automated method to use wood microdensity profiles to detect and quantify intra-annual wood density fluctuations in earlywood of pine trees. We developed a new, automated method to use X-ray wood microdensity profiles to detect and quantify intra-annual density fluctuations within the earlywood region (IADFe) of each annual growth ring… CONTINUE READING
