Crown Shyness in Forests UPSC NOTE


  • Crown shyness is a natural phenomenon observed in forests where the treetops appear to be separated by narrow gaps in the canopy.

  • It is most common in temperate deciduous forests that have a mix of tree species and ages.

  • Certain tree species, including eucalyptus, pine, and oak, exhibit crown shyness more prominently.

  • The precise cause of crown shyness remains a mystery, intriguing scientists for a long time.

  • Various hypotheses have been proposed, including:

    • Adaptive mechanism to reduce competition for sunlight, water, and nutrients among trees.

    • Possible prevention of disease spread.

    • Physical rubbing of leaves and branches in windy conditions may hinder growth and overlapping of treetops.

  • Some botanists suggest that buds at the ends of branches can sense light from neighboring trees and avoid growing in that direction.
