Unfortunately, Sequoia gigantea was also not a legitimate name, having been previously used by Endlicher to describe a horticultural variety of the coast redwood, and this problem was not satisfactorily resolved until the American John T. Buchholz described Sequoiadendron in 1939. Buchholz' decision to establish a new genus apart from Sequoia was widely criticized by the old guard of California botanists, but his arguments-based on substantial differences in the development of Sequoia and Sequoiadendron seed cones-have subsequently won general acceptance (Hartesveldt et al. 1975)  .

Andrew Ellicott Douglass sought to demonstrate the sunspot cycle of 11 years and found that today is an established science: dendrochronology. Douglass died at age 94 without fulfilling his dream of showing traces of the solar cycle in tree rings. He was never able to prove it, nor has anyone else, says McGraw. Its significance, if it’s real, is unclear. Nevertheless, Douglass will always be for McGraw like the redwoods that he studied, a giant immortal. By Javier Yanes for Ventana al Conocimiento.

The field of dendrochronology had a developmental "head start" of at least several decades relative to the inception of radiocarbon dating in the late 1940s, but that evolution was sufficiently advanced so that unique capabilities of tree-ring science could assure success of the 14C enterprise.

Andrew Ellicott Douglass and the giant sequoias in the founding of dendrochronology.

Astronomer Andrew Ellicott Douglass originally sought out tree rings as documentation of sunspot cycles and their role in climate. In the process, he created the science of dendrochronology and made significant discoveries in Southwestern archaeology, forestry, botany, and biology. He began by using Pinus ponderosa , then found a second species, Sequoiadendron gigantum , that could take him further into the refinement of tree-ring science. This history examines the role of Sequoiadendron gigantum in the development of dendrochronology. McGraw teaches biology at the University of San Diego. He has spent 14 summers as a ranger-naturalist with the National Park Service, working among the giant sequoias. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
