WorldDendro 2010 will take place June 13-18, 2010, in Rovaniemi, Finland.

The WorldDendro 2010 conference focuses on dendrochronology and the applications of tree rings as environmental sensors. The specific theme of the conference is climate change, one of the greatest challenges of our time. About 400 researchers from 40 countries will seek for answers to the questions such as:

  • What can tree rings tell us about forest health?
  • What kind of requirements does changing climate pose for sustainable forest management?
  • How large are the recent oscillations of climate compared to long-term variation?
  • What possibilities do new analytical techniques provide us for detecting past, present and future trends in tree growth??
