The 6th Asian Dendrochronology Conference "A window to the world of Asian Dendrochronology" will be held from 24-30 November 2019 in Lucknow, India.


Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeosciences


The International Asian Dendrochronology Conference, under the banner of Asian Dendrochronological Association (ADA), is held every two years and is a meeting point for the scientific community carrying out tree-ring research in Asia.

The AsianDendro 2019 conference aims to promote the exchange of existing information and knowledge of tree-ring related studies in Asian countries. A galaxy of dendrochronologist working on multiple disciplines of tree-ring studies from various regions of Asia and other parts of the world will be participating in this conference. This gathering shall help address various issues and advancement occurring in the science of tree-rings towards climate change, geological phenomenon, biological and forestry related issues. This also opens the possibility to collaborate and to be acquainted with advanced techniques in dendrochronology.


During the conference, a two-day workshop (29-30 November) will be organized, covering various new aspects of tree-rings.

All details:


Subject to change:

- Dendroclimatology: Past climate variability known from tree-rings
- Tropical Dendrochronology: Where does tree ring studies stand in the tropics?
- Wood Anatomy: The inside story of wood for Dendrochronology
- Dendrohydrology: The extremities of hydroclimatic variations
- Tree-line Dendrochronology: Towards the limits of mountain vegetation
- Forest Ecology: Understanding the ecosystem of forests through tree-rings
- Tree-rings and Isotopes: Their amalgamation and linkages
- Dendrochronology in non-traditional species: Challenges and Opportunities
- New methodologies in tree-ring analysis: Advances and recent developments
- Encompassing tree-rings with low-resolution proxies: A multi-proxy approach
- Tree-rings and fire ecology: The complexities of forest fire records in tree-rings
- Complication in tree-ring studies: Growth anomalies and their answer
- Linking tree-rings with the world oceans: Tele-connections originating in the blue world
- Tree-ring network studies: Spatio-temporal connections of tree-rings
- Environmental pollution: Do tree-rings record its signature?
- Agricultural productivity and tree-growth patterns: Models from tree-rings and grains
