Shoot growth and crown development: effect of crown position in three-dimensional simulations
Trees have been increasingly considered as modular organisms, with individual shoots forming autonomous units that respond semi-independently to their surrounding environment. However, there is evidence for fairly strict hormonal control of tree crown development. Studies on the hydraulic architecture of trees suggest a closer functional connection between shoots and crown development than is postulated by the theory of branch autonomy. We studied how shoot growth pattern influences growth anddoi:10.1093/treephys/23.2.129 pmid:12533307 fatcat:l47cihdidrgfrjoukionumncc4
