|Tree Rings – Markings of Years|
The island of Taiwan is situated at the Topic of Cancer. This geographic setting and the fact that there are many precipitous mountains on the island result in several climate zones. Within differing climate zones, different forest zones are formed. These manifest that besides the many climate zones, Taiwan also embraces almost all of the northern hemisphere forest zones, thus providing a precious location in the study of tree ring meteorology.
