Austral Dendroecological Fieldweek, 2000 
San Martin de los Andes, Patagonia, Argentina



    The Austral Dendroecological Fieldweek (ADEF) was held at San Martin de los Andes in northern Patagonia, Argentina, in conjunction with the International Conference on Dendrochronology for the Third Millennium held in Mendoza from 2-7 April. The ADEF was a chance for students and professionals attending the conference to learn both basic and advanced methods in tree-ring research. Researchers from all over the world attended, many of whom are working in new areas or with new species and new applications in dendrochronological studies. 
    The format for the week followed those set by both the North American and European Dendroecological Fieldweeks. Organizers for the ADEF included Peter Brown and Paul Krusic, Co-Directors of the North American Fieldweeks, and our group leaders included Fritz Schweingruber, founder of the European Dendroweeks, and Tom Levanic, co-organizer of this year's European Dendroecological Fieldweek in Mašun, Slovenia. Other research projects during the week were lead by David Stahle and Ed Cook. Our intrepid local organizer who made the week run so smoothly was Ricardo Villalba of the CRICYT Tree-Ring Laboratory in Mendoza.
