Patagonia?s forests are probably experiencing the warmest period of the last millennium; precipitation has also decreased significantly in recent decades. These changes have introduced substantial variations in rates of forest growth and the frequency, magnitude, and spatial scale of natural disturbance at regional scales. Several long-lived trees species living in the region are suitable for reconstructing past disturbance at an annual resolution, making it possible to understand these relationships using long-term series of both climate and disturbance.
