Dendrochronologists have long estimated the impact of climate on tree-ring growth by empirical-statistical methods. The use of the model is illustrated with examples from widely differing environments, and possible future directions for model development and application are discussed. As forests are the main carbon sink on land, the results are of great importance for all global change studies.

From the reviews:
"This volume links conifer tree physiology and ecology with computerized simulations to analyze environmental data stored in tree rings. ... This volume will be important and stimulating for experts who practice dendrochronology or wood formation, ecologists of boreal forest, and graduate students ... . This book will interest modelers and forest ecologists who wish to learn more about tree-growth modeling." (Paolo Cherubini and Simcha Lev-Yadun, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 83 (1), March, 2008)
