A property P of a structure S does not reflect if no substructure of S of smaller cardinality than S has the property. If for a given property P there is such an S of cardinality κ, we say that P does not reflect at κ. We undertake a fine analysis of Kurepa trees which results in defining canonical topological and combinatorial structures associated with the tree which possess a remarkably wide range of nonreflecting properties providing new constructions and solutions of open problems in topology. The most interesting results show that many known properties may not reflect at any fixed singular cardinal of uncountable cofinality. The topological properties we consider vary from normality, collectionwise Hausdorff property to metrizablity and many others. The combinatorial properties are related to stationary reflection. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
