An Evolutionary View of Wood
Discussion of some recent literature on the interrelations of tree stem form and wood structure, leading to a so-called dynamic hypothesis which attempts to explain these relationships in terms of adaptive self-regulation. Elements of the hypothetical system are wind-induced sway, hormones, and stimulus-sensing and recording by the cell walls. Silvicultural and utilization implications are briefly discussed.
