Summer school: From xylogenesis to dendroecology: dendrochronology, quantitative wood anatomy and stable isotopes

The summer school will provide knowledge and tools to study and interpret "signal stored" in wood based on a multidisciplinary approach: from xylogenesis to quantitative wood anatomy, tree-ring measurements, and tree-ring stable isotopes. It will show how understanding the dynamics of wood formation in response to environmental factors is pivotal to forecast forest response to ongoing climate changes. The course will include theory, fieldwork, and hands-on laboratory sessions. Students will be involved in all aspects of sample preparation and analysis as well as in data interpretation.
