Tree Growth and the Environmental Complex: A Critique of "Ring" Growth Studies with Suggestions for Future Research
This report of a conference held at the University of California in August, 1941, presents the views of a group of specialists on the formation and interpretation of "tree rings." Much emphasis is placed on the complexity of the environmental factors influencing tree growth and on the biometric difficulties involved in attempts to correlate tree growth with rainfall. The conference agreed that extensive experimental studies under controlled conditions are desirable, and that the cooperation of physiologists, ecologists, climatologists, soil scientists, and other specialists is essential in determining the effect of the various environmental factors on growth.
