Resumen:
The application of dendrochronology, or the analysis of growth ring records of trees, is relatively new in South America, but its development has grown during the last few decades. The first systematic tree ring studies in South America where done for temperate regions in Patagonia. Many scientists were first attracted by the possibility of developing long tree ring chronologies in areas where strong seasonality in temperature induces winter dormancy and annual ring formation in many tree species. Since the 1950s, when Edmund Schulman from the University of Arizona developed one of the first tree ring chronologies in Argentina, an enormous amount of information has been derived from hundreds of tree ring chronologies from different sites in southern South America.
