W ith the increasing p ressure on resources and environment caused by global climate change, the theoretical and p ractical significance of dendroecological study is greater. This paper briefly outlined the advance of dendroecology research in term s of forest disturbance, population dynam ics, forest structure, forest regeneration patterns and alp ine timberline. Dendroecology will p lay an important part in the study on individual tree growth, population dynam ics, the relation of fire, insect, wind disaster to forestry dynam ics, and forestry management. Key words: dendroecology, forest disturbance, population dynam ics, forest regeneration patterns, alp ine timberline,, [ 1 ], [ 2 ] 80,, [ 3 ], 3 : : ( ) :,,,, :, E - mail: com :,,,, :, E - mail: com
