INTRODUCTIONThis report summarizes tree-ring chronologies recently developed by the University of Arizona Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research that can be used for the purpose of examining tree-ring growth response to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Portions of this research were accomplished under contract with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory project “Detection of forest response to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide” (Darrell C. West, P.I.).
