Aboveground tree architecture is neither fully deterministic nor random. It is likely the result of mechanisms that balance static requirements and light-capturing efficiency. Here we used terrestrial laser scanning data to investigate the relationship between tree architecture, here addressed using the box-dimension (Db), and the architectural benefit-to-cost ratio, the light availability and the growth of trees. We detected a clear relationship between Db and the benefit-to-cost ratio for the tested three temperate forest tree species...
