*Call for papers: *

*2nd International Sclerochronology Conference*

*Mainz**, Germany**, 24 – 28 July 2010*

 Dear all,

*Registration and abstract submission for ISC2010 is now open.*


*** *** <>**

*Who should attend?*

Anyone working on or interested in the formation and interpretation of
growth increments in accretionary hard parts of invertebrate and vertebrate
organisms as well as corraline red algae, their geochemistry and crystal
fabrics or the underlying processes of biomineralization, should attend this
conference. Come to Mainz, share your thoughts and help to bring this
fast-developing field forward!

Please note: We also highly welcome contributions from people working with
tree rings, speleothems and related bio- and geoarchives.

Details on the 2nd International Sclerochronology Conference are available
from the conference website at

The conference organizers hope to welcome you at the University of Mainz for
exciting presentations and discussions in this fast developing field. Please
check the website for further information.

- Bernd R. Schöne (conference chair), Geosciences, University of Mainz,

- Andrew L.A. Johnson, Geographical, Earth and Environmental Sciences,
University of Derby, UK

- Claire E. Lazareth, LOCEAN, Institut Pierre Simon Laplace, France

- David P. Gillikin, Earth Science and Geography, Vassar College, USA

- Kazushige Tanabe, Earth and Planetary Science, University of Tokyo, Japan

- Meghan Burchell, Anthropology, McMaster University, Canada

- Thomas Tütken, Steinmann Institute, University of Bonn, Germany

 *Sclerochronology* is the study of physical and chemical variations in the
accretionary hard tissues of organisms, and the temporal context in which
they formed. Sclerochronology focuses primarily upon growth patterns
reflecting annual, monthly, fortnightly, tidal, daily, and sub-daily
increments of time entrained by a host of environmental and astronomical
pacemakers. Familiar examples include yearly banding in reef coral skeletons
and otoliths or daily and annual growth patterns in mollusk shells.
is analogous to dendrochronology, the study of annual rings in trees, and
equally seeks to deduce organismal life history traits as well as to
reconstruct records of environmental and climatic change through time and
