Correlations within the Tree

Chapter
Part of the Forestry Sciences book series (FOSC, volume 24-26)

Abstract

The growth and form of trees are largely the result of an innate pattern of development (26). Under field conditions the form is greatly modified by influences such as environment and growth correlations. The complexity of the form does not disappear when such influences are removed in experimental conditions (18). Tissue excised from a certain part of the tree retains its local plan for next year’s development (14). Under special circumstances, such as in tissue culture or when taking cuttings (6, 14), part of this basic plan for development at the organism level, also called architecture (21), finds expression. The innate form of architecture is obscured by the physiological status of the tree as imposed by climate.
