People across the world know that to tell how old a tree is, you count its rings. Few people, however, know that research into tree rings has also made amazing contributions to our understanding of Earth's climate history and its influences on human civilization over the past 2,000 years. In her captivating book Tree Story, Valerie Trouet reveals how the seemingly simple and relatively familiar concept of counting tree rings has inspired far-reaching scientific breakthroughs that illuminate the complex interactions between nature and people.

Trouet, a leading tree-ring scientist, takes us out into the field, from remote African villages to radioactive Russian forests, offering readers an insider's look at tree-ring research, a discipline known as dendrochronology. Tracing her own professional journey while exploring dendrochronology's history and applications, Trouet describes the basics of how tell-tale tree cores are collected and dated with ring-by-ring precision, explaining the unexpected and momentous insights we've gained from the resulting samples.

Blending popular science, travelogue, and cultural history, Tree Story highlights exciting findings of tree-ring research, including the fate of lost pirate treasure, successful strategies for surviving California wildfire, the secret to Genghis Khan's victories, the connection between Egyptian pharaohs and volcanoes, and even the role of olives in the fall of Rome. These fascinating tales are deftly woven together to show us how dendrochronology sheds light on global climate dynamics and uncovers the clear links between humans and our leafy neighbors. Trouet delights us with her dedication to the tangible appeal of studying trees, a discipline that has taken her to austere and beautiful landscapes around the globe and has enabled scientists to solve long-pondered mysteries of Earth and its human inhabitants.

Er vallen zowel positieve als negatieve dingen over dit boek te zeggen.

De feiten die worden aangevoerd zijn bijzonder interssant. De auteur zegt echter dat correlaties niet hetzelfde zijn als oorzakelijke verbanden. Zelf neemt ze het daar niet altijd even nauw mee als het haar uitkomt.

Al te bont wordt het wanneer een Bio-ingenieur zich op het terrein begeeft van historici.

Het boek is oorspronkelijk in het Engels geschreven. Engelstalige onderzoeken schieten vooral tekort omdat ze zich enkel baseren op Engelstalige bronnen. Ook hier is dit een ernstig tekort. Een monumentaal werk dat hier zeker gebruikt had moeten worden is 'Duizend jaar weer, wind en water in de Lage Landen.' van Jan Buisman. En dan te bedenken dat het om een Nederlandstalige professor gaat die dit terzijde laat liggen. Een student bij ons zou er een onvoldoende voor krijgen.

Natuurlijk wil een hoogleraar aan de UA niet uit de maat vallen. Wie al van jongs af aan gepriviligeerde kansen krijgt is tot veel bereid om dit zo te houden.

Verwacht tenslotte geen boek over de opwarming van het klimaat. De enkele paragrafen hierover dienen maar als aandachttrekkers. ( )
