Abstract

Tree growth in this area does respond to ENSO events, but the response varies with species and type of event. El Nino-influenced climate tends to result in larger tree rings the year of or year following the event, while La Nina-influenced climate tends to result in smaller rings the year after the event, reflecting spring moisture conditions. Trees have a more consistent response to La Nina events, but El Nino events seem to have a greater effect on extremes in growth. -from Author
