Track: Science and decision making
South America is the only landmass in the Southern Hemisphere that extends from the tropics through the mid-latitude Westerlies to the subantarctic domains at ~55˚S. Stretching N-S over a 65° latitudinal transect, dendrochronological records in South American offer unique opportunities to study the interlinked low- and high-latitude processes influencing climate in the Southern Hemisphere and ...

Track: Science and decision making
Our network of 170 moisture-sensitive tree-ring chronologies is the basis for millennial reconstructions of surface water levels across Canada’s western interior, where water is limiting ecologically and economically. This paleohydrology undermines fundamental assumptions about the reliability and stationarity of water supplies, by revealing scales and extremes of hydroclimatic variability outs ... More

Track: Science and decision making
The need for science to inform decision making, particularly in the light of the need to adapt to a changing environment, has provided opportunities for scientists to engage with resource managers. Tree-ring scientists are well-positioned to respond to these needs. Planning requires some knowledge of what may occur in the future, and somewhat ironically, looking into the past is a key source of t ... More

Track: Science and decision making
Pinus species from around the world exhibit various adaptations to fire as an evolutionary force. Adaptations such as cone serotiny or thick bark are widespread in Pinus, such that Mirov in his classic volume The Genus Pinus (1967) devoted more attention to fire than on any other physiological or ecological factor affecting various species of the genus. In this talk, I focus on how dendroecologi ... More

Track: Science and decision making
Tree-ring reconstructions of hydroclimate variables such as streamflow, precipitation, and drought indices are increasingly used by water managers and others in risk analyses intended to capture their system’s behavior under paleo-variability. While these users are generally informed about the uncertainty around the reconstructed values—which implies multiple plausible realizations of past var ... More

Track: Dendroecology
Climatic variations modulate the growth of forests at large temporal and spatial scales. Based on the most up-to-date network of tree-ring records in the Southern Hemisphere (SH), we identified the dominant patterns of tree growth at sub-continental scales in southern South America, Tasmania and New Zealand. Positive departures in tree growth at subalpine forests in Tasmania and New Zealand contra ... More
