of perennial forbs and mature oaks show similar effects of climate but inconsistent responses to fire in the North American prairie-forest ecotone.

We counted and measured the annual rings
of each cored tree using a compound dissecting microscope and a Velmex stage micrometer attached to a Metronics QC10 digital display and a computer running MeasureJ2X software (VoorTech.com, 2008) in order to determine age structure and growth patterns of stands at each study site.
Schwartz (1983), with whole vertebrae in the eastern USA coast and Andrade and Mazzoleni (1999) with vertebrae cuts from southern Brazilian scalloped hammerheads also obtained evidence of annual ring
Radionuclide specific activities in each annual ring
are determined according to formula (2), evaluating a specific activity decrease due to radioactive decay:
The approximate size (diameter) of the first annual ring
can be easily estimated using the relationship between flounder's total length (L) and the length of otoliths ([L.sub.o]) [L.sub.o] = 0.0268L + 0.076 (ICES, 2008).
Damage due to fire, landslide, insects, and other natural occurrences can be seen in the patterns of annual ring
Dendroecology is the study of the ecological and environmental changes depicted in the annual rings
2 Strangled trees - now that the summer spurt of growth has finished and the trunks of our garden trees have expanded as much as they are going to this side of Christmas, it is a good time to check any ties and straps on trees planted over the last four or five years and make slight adjustments to allow for the trunk expansion - this year's wet summer has produced vast amounts of new growth and the new annual ring
that has formed inside the trees will be much larger than normal.
When the growth (width of annual ring
) decreases in both ring-widths' series put beside each other, then it is considered to be one similarity point.
Each annual ring
was macerated and three glass slides of the macerate prepared for observation.
