Shifts in the Spatio-Temporal Growth Dynamics of Shortleaf Pine
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Previous studies focusing on the growth history of pinus echinata at the edge of its geographical range have suggested that changes in growth correspond to climatic and non-climatic (e.g., anthropogenic) factors. We employ a regime-dependent state-space model that allows us to detect and characterize the changes in tree growth dynamics over space and time using readily available dendrochronological and climatic data in the presence of various sources of uncertainty.
