AbstractFull Text

Tipa (Tipuana tipu) is a common tree in gardens and carparks, although the shading effect of its canopy must be still characterised to assess the decrease of temperature and quality of irradiance. This work is a preliminary study aimed to assess the effect of shading of tree canopies on the diffuse...

This review of tree biomechanics covers recent research publications that offer new insights into how trees respond to mechanical loads and resist failure, especially in winds. Biomechanical studies using dynamic rather than static structural methods are showing that the form of the tree influences...
