ultimate site to find dendrochronology information on
the web, in other electronic forms, and in print. From
basic introductions to the field of tree ring research
to in-depth bibliographies of specialized sources, this

links to their publishers, links to other
dendrochronology web sites and to bibliographic
databases, information on software tools for the
discipline, and job announcements. The site developer is

damn good, and very comprehensive, I must say. Too bad
we're not on the net yet, because this is one site I

that focuses on what the study of tree rings can tell
about the past. This is called dendrochronology. Check
this site out to learn basic principles of
dendrochronology, and to view an outstanding photo
gallery. I find this site particularly encouraging
because the researcher must fight against Ankylosing
Spondylitis which is a form of arthritis. This
emphasizes the fact that even handicappers can make
significant contributions in the field of horticulture."

of tools for conducting field and laboratory research.
In addition to a hypertext-linked list, the site
includes helpful tips to help make the task of tree-ring
dating easier. Back at the "Ultimate" webpage, users
will find many interesting facts and beautiful images of
ancient tree cross-sections, complete with question and
answers. Examples of photos available include a New
