Wood: Structure and Function

Credits: 3

Spring 2016: Tu,Th, 10:30-11:50, March Classroom
Spring OCI Listing    

This course focuses on the extraordinary diversity of wood anatomy at the cellular level, and on the practice of dendrochronology that allows students to take advantage of predictable, inter-annual variability in tree growth to reconstruct environmental history. The primary focus of this course will be on common northeastern trees and other commercially important timber species. A primary goal of this course will be to participate in the development of a master tree-ring chronology for the School forests. A background in tree physiology and anatomy, and basic statistics is strongly recommended.
