International summer school – Dendroecology, Quantitative Wood Anatomy and Stable Isotopes: from xylogenesis to tree rings

25-29 September 2017

University of Naples Federico II (Naples) and University of Campania (Caserta)


The summer school will provide basic and innovative knowledge on different aspects of wood formation: from xilogenesis to quantitative wood anatomy, from tree-ring stable isotopes to data interpretation. The course will include field-work training and hands-on laboratory sessions. Students will be involved in all aspects of tree-ring research: from sample preparation to data analysis and interpretation.

Main topic

  • Dendrochronology, tree-rind width measurements with LINTAB system, TSAP software analyses and tree-ring chronology analyses.
  • Quantitative Wood Anatomy, xylogenesis analyses and quantification of functional wood traits
  • Stable Isotopes (C & O): procedure of sample preparation and ecophysiological interpretation
  • Data Analysis (using basic tree-ring softwares)

Deadline for registration 31 May
