Hosting a workshop or fieldweek? We offer a Traveling Dendro Kit that provides the basic equipment for sampling and crossdating. This kit includes five increment borers, microscope (ten optical plus a digital scope), battery-operated lights, sanding equipment, straws, and more, in a hard-sided suitcase that weighs less than 22 kg (50 lbs) to meet most airline check-in baggage requirements. You pay for shipping. Please contact Peter Brown (pmb at rmtrr dot org) for more details about borrowing the kit for your workshop or fieldweek.
“Microscopic Preparation Techniques for Plant Stem Analysis” by Holger Gärtner and Fritz Schweingruber (2013, Verlag Dr. Kessel, Remagen. 78 p.) is now available as a free PDF from the above linked website.
