The event “Dendroclimatology Conference: Past, Present, and Future” was hosted on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson by the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research (LTRR) on May 3-5, 2023. Its conception originated from the confluence of four faculty retirements and the fields of dendrochronology in which the retirees specialized.

Dr. Malcolm K. Hughes has contributed to building large-scale networks of “proxy” climate records. He works to establish new kinds of tree-ring records (new species, regions, and variables), update millennial and multimillennial chronologies, and examine tree rings and remotely sensed data to characterize forest growth and health. His interests further include understanding formation of tree rings through field sampling, quantitative wood analysis, and modeling of climate influence on tree-ring growth. He is a UArizona Regents Professor, a Fellow of both the American Geophysical Union and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a College...
