Dendrogeomorphology Beginnings and Futures: a private memory My early forays into dendrogeomorphology happened lengthy ahead of I even knew what that observe intended. i used to be operating as a tender geoscientist within the Sixties and early Seventies on an issue with slope events and deformed plants. while, unknown to me, Jouko Alestalo in Finland was once doing whatever comparable. either one of us had noticeable that bushes which produced annual development earrings have been reacting to g- morphic techniques leading to alterations of their inner and exterior progress p- terns. Dendroclimatology was once an already good verified box, however the reactions of bushes to different environmental procedures have been a ways much less good understood within the Nineteen Sixties. It used to be Alestalo (1971) who first used the time period, dendrogeomorphology. within the early Nineteen Seventies, i may see that lively slope-movement approaches have been affecting the expansion of timber in assorted methods at convinced localities. i needed to profit extra approximately these techniques and take a look at to extract a long term chronology of circulation from the hugely diversified ring styles.
