Guided hike, tree coring, and more… December 4th 2015

All of us have counted the rings on the cut stump of a tree when we were kids (or kids at heart).  Dendrochronology, or tree ring analysis, takes the patterns of growth visible in those wide and narrow growth rings and gives us clues about past climate and disturbance experienced by the trees in a forest.

You will be working alongside Dr. Win Everham, professor of disturbance ecology at FGCU, learning the techniques of coring trees and exploring some of the uses of this widely applicable research method. Come learn about research that has been going on out at CREW for over 10 year now, to sign up visit http://www.eventbrite.com/e/dendrochronology-tree-coring-science-with-dr-disturbance-a-crew-strolling-science-seminar-tickets-18217973449
