Daily growth, climatic, and water status measurements were made on three chestnut oaks (Quercus prinus L.) and one pitch pine (Pinus rigida Mill.) on a dry Appalachian Mountain site in southwest Virginia. Using principal component analysis along with cluster analysis, growth and no-growth days could be correctly predicted 77 percent of the time. Forest Sci. 25:232-236.
