Trees - Structure and Function publishes original papers on the physiology, biochemistry, functional anatomy, structure and ecology of trees and other woody plants. Also presented are articles concerned with pathology and technological problems, when they contribute to the basic understanding of structure and function of trees. In addition to original papers and short communications, the journal publishes reviews on selected topics concerning the structure and function of trees.

These tagged articles will be brought together on SpringerLink in topical collections, easily accessible online as a service for our readers. Articles of such online collections will be processed and published in regular issues just like all other articles.

The Founding Editor of Trees - Structure and Function is Hubert Ziegler.

The Editors-in-Chief are Robert D. Guy, Department of Forest Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and Ulrich E. Lüttge, Botanisches Institut der TU, Darmstadt, Germany.
