Abstract:Unabated interest in dendrochronology continues among certain groups of scientists and the laity. The various claims beguilingly presented are rather generally accepted among those not biologically trained. On the other hand, the claims are accepted conditionally or with many reservations by those plant ecologists and plant physiologists who have followed the study from collecting the radials to correlation effort of ring widths and precipitation cycles.
