Resource Capture & Modelling


Modelling plant information flows (G. Lobet)

Functional-Structural Plant Models explicitly simulate the growth and development of single plants, together with complex physiological processes and environmental responses. We use Functional-Structural Plant Modelling (i) to understand how various signals that carry information are interacting and being conveyed and integrated at the plant level and (ii) to amplify discrete physiological knowledge into functional plant processes.
