About:

Dr. Jacques Tardif has been studying the boreal forests of Manitoba since 1998. Tardif is a forest historian who uses tree rings to better understand tree growth, forest disturbances and climate interactions in central Canada.

He uses tree-ring measurements and tree-ring anomalies to reconstruct environmental events (cool summers, late spring frosts, insect outbreaks) that took place over the last two to three centuries. Tree-ring analysis provides a long-term perspective when analyzing recent environmental changes.
