dc.description.abstractRatios of oxygen-18 to oxygen-16 in cellulose of dated rings from trees grown in nature and from plants grown in controlled environments have significance for retrieving information about the environment in which they grew. Phaseolus vulgaris was grown under varying conditions of controlled temperature, humidity and ¹⁸O/ ¹⁶O of irrigation water. The ¹⁸O/ ¹⁶O in plant tissue responds mostly to different environmental relative humidity; plant tissue grown under conditions of low relative humidity produce tissue relatively high in oxygen-18. Reasons for this response are not clear to us, but the relationship may prove a useful complement to established dendroclimatologic techniques.
