Table 3 Summary of the dendrochronological record for 13 kauri trees at the DK site detailing the years covered by each core and the correlation of each core with the site master record, along with DBH measured in 2011

From: Raised in the wild south: a dendrochronological and dendrochemical profile of a far-southern stand of kauri (Agathis australis) on the Taieri Plain, Otago

  1. 1One core from DK01 was damaged during transport and consequently excluded from analysis.
  2. 2Cores not reaching the 0.42 (99%) correlation threshold are marked A (under 99% significance level but highest as dated) or B (correlation higher at other than dated position).
