The main objective of the PhD project is to exploit the potential of tree-ring anatomy of subfossil wood to improve dendroclimatic reconstructions and ecophysiological understanding. Multiple chronologies of tree-ring anatomical traits with distinct environmental sensitivity and that span key periods of the last two millennia will be implemented. Intra-annual analysis of tree-ring anatomical traits will also be performed to better discriminate past seasonal climate changes.

Poster résumé du projet de thèse présenté à la première conférence du Groupe de Recherche en Ecologie de la MRC Abitibi (GREMA)
The main goal of the PhD project is to explore and exploit the potential of Quantitative Wood Anatomy of subfossil black spruce to reconstruct the last 2 millenias of climate in northern Quebec. We will use measurements of various tracheid parameters in tree-rings as new climate proxies in order to better understand past climate variability as well as the impacts of volcanic forcings on tree functionning.
