New insights into tree architecture from mobile laser scanning and geometry analysis

Dominik Seidel, Yonten Dorji, Bernhard Schuldt, Emilie Isasa & Klaus Körber
The structure and dynamics of a forest are defined by the architecture and growth patterns of its individual trees. In turn, tree architecture and growth result from the interplay between the genetic building plans and environmental factors. We set out to investigate whether (i) latitudinal adaptations of the crown shape occur due to characteristic solar elevation angles at a species’ origin, (ii) architectural differences in trees are related to seed dispersal strategies, and (iii) tree...
