• Studies on wood density variations are necessary for estimating the forest carbon pool. Further, they can help predict the technological properties of wooden end-products. While there have been frequent reports on the relationships between wood density, cambial age, and ring width, there is little information about the historical trend in wood density for the last century, particularly in the context of global climate change. • In this study, different sources of variations in mean ring… CONTINUE READING
