Workshop ‘Individualistic Growth Response’-network

From 6th to 9th of February 2018, 19 members of the Individualistic Growth Response network (IGR) from 11 countries participated in a workshop held at Wageningen University and Research (WUR), Netherlands. The aim of the workshop was to obtain a first insight into the IGR data-network and outline further research avenues. It was organized by WUR staff members Allan Buras (initiator of IGR) and Ute Sass-Klaassen, and financially supported by the Association for Tree-Ring Research (ATR).
