Editorial

Including media and, more generally, non-propositional content in a journal article undoubtedly increases its complexity allowing more demanding things to be communicated. The labour involved in understanding media-rich, multimodal, and often non-linear articles can be either rewarding or frustrating depending on how, on reflection, we evaluate this encounter. As a reviewer recently commented: ‘I really enjoyed working on this article and want to thank you for the opportunity. It is only in this close reading that I became aware of how effectively your format works.’ It may be that reading JAR’s expositions of practice as research must always be ‘close’; it may also be that expositions invite closeness in ways that more conventional journal articles cannot or do not want to afford.Click here to Read More

Trees: Pinus sylvestris Marcus Maeder

Abstract
In the research project ‚trees: Rendering Ecophysiological Processes Audible‘, we worked on the acoustic recording, analysis and representation of ecophysiological and climatic processes in and around plants and studying the acoustic and aesthetic requirements for making them perceptible. We recorded sounds of plants and brought them in relation to other measurement data such as that relating to the microclimate, sap flow, changes in trunk radius and water potential in the plants’ organs – measurement data that is not auditory per se...
