Tree Ring and Environmental Change Group, set up since June 2012, is a Young Scientist Group of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). This group focuses on environmental change in the tropical, subtropical regions of southwestern China. By combining dendrochronology, tree ecophysiology, and climatic statistics, we focus on reconstructing regional climate change during the past centuries; investigating growth-climate responses of tropical/sub-tropical tree species; detecting physiological adaptation of tropical plants to simulated environmental change (i.e. CO2 enrichment, global warming); modelling vegetation thermal response based on thermodynamics, energy balance and radiation balance.
