Dendrometers are instruments for continuous measurement of plant growth (changes of the plant diameter). Data of dendrometer document the reactions of plants to environment in high temporal resolution.
In ecophysiological research environmental parameters are measured hourly or shorter. The plant parameters such as yield, biomass and tree rings are only available annually. It is quite difficult to compare hourly data with annual data. Significance of such cause-effect studies on different time scales is limited.
Dendrometer allows us to record the plant parameters at the same time interval, such as environmental parameters. The data therefore permit the direct assignment of plant responses to environmental influences. Dendrometer are therefore a cost-effective and useful tool for ecophysiological studies.
