BACKGROUND AND AIMS Stem shape in angiosperms depends on several growth traits such as elongation direction, amount and position of axillary loads, stem dimensions, wood elasticity, radial growth dynamics and active re-orientation due to tension wood. This paper analyses the relationship between these biomechanical factors and stem shape variability. METHODS Three apricot tree varieties with contrasting stem shape were studied. Growth and bending dynamics, mechanical properties and amount of… CONTINUE READING
