Table of Contents:
Dendrochronological investigations in Tasmania indicate that living individuals of the two principal species in the genus Athrotaxis, Pencil Pine (A. cupressoides) and King Billy Pine (A. selaginoides), will provide chronologies of c. 1000 years. Older dead wood has also been collected. In Pencil Pine crossdating has been established between stands close to timberline in all the areas investigated, covering most of the range of the species, with some sites over 100 km apart. In King Billy Pine the regional climatic signal is more difficult to detect, due to low frequency growth trends and general complacency associated with the temperate montane rain forest habitat of this species. In such stands the oldest trees show the clearest crossdating. The first account of the distribution and population ecology of the two species is presented.
