The growth ring concept: seeking a broader and unambiguous approach covering tropical species
The elaboration of a robust but broad definition which can include all the variation observed in growth rings of tropical species is a complex task, which is only possible by overcoming the restrictions adopted by dendrochronologists and wood anatomists of temperate regions. Expand

Wound occlusion and annual stem growth rates of five woodland tree species in South Africa
In a 1998 study of bark thickness and tree size, six species used for traditional medicine were sampled by removing 5 cm-diameter bark disks at four height intervals on 210 stems at 15 sites in South Africa, there was a tendency for smaller and/or faster growing stems to exhibit more wound occlusion and faster rates of bark regrowth.

Quantitative analysis of ring growth in spruce roots and its application towards a more precise dating
Abstract Missing and wedging rings are common features of tree growth. They occur more frequently in roots than in stems and were reported for various species and sites. These rather frequentExpand
