It is a pleasure to inform you that the journal Forests MDPI is planning to publish a Special Issue on “Using Dendrochronology to Extract Climate Change Impact Over Recent Decades”. Dendrochronology is a science that uses tree rings dated to their exact year of formation to reconstruct at centuries or millennial scales the variability of events affecting tree growth. Dendrochronology has a variety of applications and depending on the objective or objectives takes different names—e.g., dendroclimatology, dendroecology, dendrohydrology, or dendrogeomorphology. In the last few decades, millennial-length chronologies have been developed and used to analyze historical climate variability, climatic trends, and the impact of climate warming. This Special Issue aims to determine the recent effects of climate change on the ecosystems at local, regional, or national level using the different disciplines of dendrochronology.
Based on the increased interest in determining the effect of climate warming on different ecosystems worldwide, we extend an invitation to scientists, climate experts, and research professors at universities or from different educational institutions to publish their research findings in this Special Issue. Research studies based in dendroclimatology, dendroecology, dendrohydrology, and dendrogeomorphology are preferably welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Forests is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
