One tree's architecture reveals secrets of a forest, study finds

One tree's architecture reveals secrets of a forest, study finds | Tree Preservation Planning | Scoop.it
(Phys.org) —Behind the dazzling variety of shapes and forms found in trees hides a remarkably similar architecture based on fundamental, shared principles, UA ecologists have discovered.

According to the authors, their study is the first empirical test of a theory UA ecology professor Brian Enquist helped develop in 1998. That theory holds that a tree's branching structure – specifically, the width and length of its branches – predicts how much carbon and water a tree exchanges with the environment in relation to its overall size, independently of the species.
