The effects of wind on plants : a review


This review surveys some of the mechanical interactions between wind and plants, from plant. organs to plant systems. The relevant nondimensional parameters are first estimated. Turbulence, plant dynamics and the mechanisms of interaction are discussed in this context. Some common. features are identified, and they are analysed in relation with wind-engineering of man-made structures. Strong coupling between plants and wind exist, where the plant motion modifies the wind dynamics. Some related biological issued are also mentionned
