Architecture and development of rainforest trees: responses to light variation


Architecture and development of rainforest trees: responses to light variation



Dynamics of tropical communities : the 37th symposium of the British Ecological Society, Cambridge University 1996: 125-162



A review is presented which investigates architectural changes during tree development. These architectural changes were studied in relation to tree height and light availability for 2 canopy tree species (Dicorynia guianensis and Vouacapoua americana) in a lowland tropical rain forest at the Les Nouragues Field Station, French Guiana, during 1992-94.
