Content Description top ↑

The aim of this study is the detection of the growth pattern of Nothofagus pumilio over the W-E transect, and the precise evaluation of the climate-growth relationships across its broad distribution range over ecologically different sites, with the aim of contributing to its utilisation for dendroclimatological research purposes. The present investigation hopes to make a small contribution towards a better and more complex understanding of climate variability in mountain regions of the Southern Hemisphere.
