• Dendrochronology in Oaxaca, Mexico: A Preliminary Study

      Naylor, Thomas H.; Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, The University of Arizona (Tree-Ring Society, 1971)
      Dendrochronological research in the Mexican state of Oaxaca in 1970 proved negative due to complacent ring series. It is suggested that this is caused by a flexible growing season triggered only by the onset of the rains. Pine and fir were sampled from eleven sites. No old age trees were located and crossdating could not be accomplished.
