Climatic variation and tree-ring structure in conifers : empirical and mechanistic models of tree-ring width , number of cells , cell size , cell-wall thickness and wood density


Variations in tree-ring structure are simulated with (1) an empirical model using monthly climatic data as statistical predictors and (2) a mechanisbc model using daily climatic data as growth limiting conditions. The empirical model calibrates standardized ring-width and density chronologies of tree-rings with monthly temperature, precipitation or Palmer… (More)
