Well Toby,

I'm going to give this a shot and see if it works...

Another topic which concerns crown morphology and development 
with regard to the parents and hybrids should consider crown
stability with regard to mechanics and wind loading.  How much
of a sail area (speed specific drag) is created and how does that
influence both cambial development to support the loading, and
root development.

We are currently looking at some of these issues both in the
lab and field.
