Current situation of dendrochronological research in Spain. Review note
AbstractThe article discuss papers dealing with dendrochronology published before 1994, and on some major data of the series they include, in order to get a general view of the dendrochonological coverage of Spain. It also presents a list of the Spanis Research Institutions that are working on dendrochronology at present, as well as another one of research studies carried out on the topic by foreign scientists in Spain. Most chronologies have been carried out on mountain areas and on species belonging to the genus Pinus, specially Pinus uncinata and Pinus sylvestris. They have been carried out with a clear dendroclimatological objective, and sometimes for historial datation. The number of species utilized in dendrochronological studies has increased in the last years, even with broadleaved trees, and new methodological orientations aimed at establishing relationships between dendrochronology and phytoclimatology have arisen thus opening new and interesting possibilities.
