I am new to Darktable and trying to use it to manage a large tree of RAW images.

I've recursively imported the root of the tree already. It's now displaying the directory names in the lighttable view when I select "folders" on the left under "collect images".

If I now add more images to the existing directories or add new directories under the root, or remove some images, how do I tell DarkTable to scan the root directory again and have it pick up the additions or deletions?

You can safely import the root directory again, Darktable will skip the pictures already imported. AFAIK there's no way to somehow automate the import process.
