Research

This is the page of Jesús Julio
(Chechu) Camarero Martínez team. I am a plant-forest ecologist and dendrochronologist working on growth , regeneration, dieback and mortality processes in woody plants and, particularly, in trees. We are a research group using dendrochronology, i.e. the study of tree rings in woody plants, to solve ecological questions. We are interested in deciphering the causes and consequences of drought-induced forest decline. We apply retrospective approaches for inferring how forests are responding to past and current global changes and to reconstruct past climate (dendroclimatology). We study cambial biology and xylogenesis to understand how trees form wood and how climate may affect the pace and pattern of xylem growth.

I work in the
INSTITUTO PIRENAICO DE ECOLOGÍA (CSIC) as researcher.
