Architecture of the growth and development of the two alpine rhododendron species Rhododendron hirsutum and Rhododendron ferrugineum as a basis for the verification of the assessed relative and absolute age of aboveground shoots
The two species of alpine rhododendrons: Rhododendron hirsutum and Rh. ferrugineum, growing in natural conditions (Hohe Tauern and southern Tirol) were studied. The studies were aimed, among others, at the elaboration of a method allowing the assessment of the relative and absolute age of these plants using an algorithm based on the average length of annual increments, and next, at the verification of these data on the basis of the morphological structure of aboveground shoots and the architecture of the growth and development of individuals.
