Branch unions - a new model
What is it about?
This article explains why the old model for how branches are attached to the trunks of trees is wrong, and why a new model is needed
Why is it important?
Many students are taught how a branch is attached to a tree using a model created in the 1980's; however this is an illogical model and needs to be replaced with a new one.
