We’re sorry, something doesn't seem to be working properly.

After publication of our work (Rhodes and Stephens 2014), we realised that incorrect data was included in Table five (Table 1 here). Specifically, most of the mean annual increment values and some of the rotation lengths were misquoted. The correct version of Table five (Table 1 here) is provided here.
