Shyness of the crown is a natural phenomenon observed in some species of trees, when the crowns of fully developed trees do not touch, forming a canopy of forest with spaces-spaces.
Other names are “the openness of the canopy”, “the shyness of the canopy”, or the “intercrown space”. Observed in trees of the same species, but cases were recorded between trees of different species.
Scientists drew attention to the phenomenon at the beginning of the last century. Even identified the trees on which it manifests itself. To the camphor tree and more lightly added avicenium, didymopanax, a club, a spiny frame, an amber, a eucalyptus. But in nature and the mechanism of the strange phenomenon of nature, it was not possible to figure it out. Scientists only became convinced that the phenomenon really exists.
