Home Publications [Archive] Shelterbelts and microclimate

This bulletin discusses the effects which shelterbelts of trees exert on the microclimates of their adjacent regions. Part one consists of a review of available scientific evidence concerning such effects and their influence on agricultural yields and forestry practice. Part two deals with a critical survey of research procedure in connexion with microclimatological investigations of shelterbelt effects. Experimental work undertaken is described in part three and discussed in relation to its practical application to shelterbelt requirements in Great Britain.
