Concepts of Modelling Carbon Allocation Among Plant Organs
Functional-Structural Plant Modelling in Crop Production
The simulation of carbon allocation among plant organs is one of the weakest features of crop growth models. This paper briefly discusses five concepts of modelling carbon partitioning: 1. Descriptive allometry, proposing a predetermined ratio between the (relative) growth rates of plant organs; 2. Functional equilibrium, proposing an equilibrium between root and shoot activity; 3. Canonical modelling, a mathematical approach based on only a qualitative understanding of the allocation process;doi:10.1007/1-4020-6034-3_9 fatcat:imkkl7ghqnc5nkcid35waczpsa
