Abstract: To explore and learn a lot about a small area in detail is a asvaluable an experience as a general overview of a large area withoutdetail. This years Dendroecological Fieldweek provided such anexperience for those who participated. It was a chance for experts inthe field of dendrochronology to demonstrate to others how tree-ring techniques may be used to examine various disparate subjectareas in environmental research. At the same time, those whoparticipated received a first-hand experience in conducting scientificexperiments with tree-rings properly. Developing hypotheses,collecting samples, analyzing data, and discussing results are thesignificant activities emphasized during the Fieldweek. The 1991 Dendroecological Fieldweek proved it's worth to thescientific community. It is now recognized as both a valuableeducational and scientific program. During the nine days that thisgroup worked together many new ideas and theories were sharedand explored. From the development and construction of a new toolfor non-destructive sampling, to the discovery of climate sensitivewestern junipers growing on recent lava beds, Fieldweek participantsproved that cooperation is the most effective single tool in science. The future of the Fieldweek looks promising. Already plans are being made for next year's program. Continuing in the spirit of this• newly created tradition, next years Fieldweek will be organized by the graduate students of the University of Arizona's, Laboratory ofTree-Ring Research. Student involvement in both the organizing andparticipation of the Fieldweek is paramount to preserving it'syouthful and progressive approach to environmental research.
