RE: Dendrochronology in Florida
Does anyone know of dendrochronology studies which have addressed historical fire regimes in Florida? Who has conducted these studies and where? Thanks!
good question...... I only know about studies in the Appalachians
Here are some of those. Maybe check through the Tall Timbers Library. I bet they have some. Let me know what you find.
