Human auditory perception can be used to exploit and understand natural time series with sound. Dendrochronology is uniquely equipped with methods and abundant time sensitive data for translating science with acoustic illustrations. The neurology of human hearing offers distinct advantages in perceiving scientific data and analyses when compared to graphic illustration. Perceiving time series of ... More

Previously, mean earlywood vessels lumen area (VLA) in ring-porous species has been shown to contain strong environmental signals. The aim of this study was to determine the response of VLA and tree-ring width (TRW) to climate in two ring-porous species in in Latvia (Europe). VLA was measured from core images (2400 dpi) using WinCELL 2007a program. Monthly precipitation sum and mean monthly temper ... More

The western spruce budworm (WSB) is the most destructive defoliator of coniferous forests in western North America. Although numerous studies have reconstructed WSB outbreaks, there has been no prior research on how outbreaks affect the anatomical structure of the stem. In this study we examine the response of Douglas-fir to sustained WSB outbreaks, hypothesizing that anatomical characteristics, e ... More

Partial cutting is known to enhance the growth of residual stems. However, a significant radial increase can lead to a lesser wood quality in regard of anatomy and density parameters. Our research aims to evaluate black spruce growth and wood quality within various partial cutting treatments in Quebec. We evaluated the annual yield and the wood quality by examining tree-ring density and anatomical ... More

Tree-ring anomalies are increasingly used to better understanding of how environmental conditions influence tree-ring formation. Frost rings (FR) constitute a well described anomaly though little is known about their distribution in tree stems. In contrast, white earlywood rings (WER) constitute an un-described anomaly. These rings present a whitish coloured earlywood and they have been observed i ... More
