The field of dendroclimatology and, to some extent, the field of [#cite_note-1 ]</sup> [#cite_note-3 ] <a href="#cite_note-4"></a>. In regions with large seasonal variations, trees produce rings of varying color depending on the species. In most cases, the rings shift from a lighter, low density early wood of spring and early summer to a darker, denser band of late wood at the end of the growing season. The growing season generally occurs during the summer month and its length depends on the species, latitude, and altitude. Therefore, trees hold perhaps the greatest potential for reconstructing past terrestrial climates at annual or even sub-annual resolution.
