To relate throughfall kinetic energy to specific tree species and to forest stands of different biodiversity levels:
How and to what extend do specific species change the kinetic energy of throughfall?
Is the effect of tree height and crown architecture species specific?
How does biodiversity influence the kinetic energy of throughfall?
How do more structured (and more diverse?) forests alter kinetic energy of throughfall?
