  author={Walter D Koenig and Johannes M. H. Knops},
The synchronous production of large seed crops by a population of plants,, known as mast-seeding, and synchronous tree-ring growth, within sites are well known phenomena among trees in the temperate zone. But information about the geographic or taxonomic extent of such synchronous growth or reproduction, or about the geographic extent of switching between them, is sparse. We have detected synchrony in growth and reproduction, both within and among genera of Northern Hemisphere boreal trees… CONTINUE READING
