In this study, three methods of aging Iceland scallops collected from GB are compared: interpreting external growth rings
on the shell, counting growth increments of the shell hinge ligament, and counting internal shell layer growth zones in sectioned shells.
Casselman (1987) reported that breeding in tropical regions is the most relevant factor for the formation of growth rings
What is the relationship between climate and the thickness of growth rings
in a tree?
Chene & Cie defines tight grain as less than an average of 3 mm per annual growth ring
(spring wood + summer wood); larger than this is open grain.
This could be related to the decrease of growth rings
due to increased age of the wood and, consequently, a higher proportion of early wood than latewood.
Hubacz holds a cross-section of a red oak that shows the growth rings
Few authors have used asterisci and lapilli otoliths to observe growth rings
, and only in fish larvae (Victor and Brothers, 1982; Brothers et al.
Mechanical and anatomical properties in individual growth rings
of plantation-grown Eastern cottonwood and loblolly pine.
There have been studies to determine the accuracy of aging a turtle by counting the growth rings
Since the initial application of daily growth rings
in the aging of larval fishes by Brothers et al.
grandis is one of the tropical species that shows clear growth rings
and suitable for climatic analysis (Chowdhury 1964, Detienne 1989, Bhattacharyya & Shah 2009).
Dendrochronology is a precise science of using annual growth rings
of trees to understand climate in the past.
