CPlantBox, a whole plant modelling framework for the simulation of water and carbon related processesXiao-Ran Zhou,Andrea Schnepf,Jan Vanderborght,Daniel Leitner,André Lacointe,Harry Vereecken,Guillaume Lobet, 2019 View paper
CPlantBox is a full plant modelling framework based on the root system model CRootBox. CPlantbox is capable of simulating the growth and development of a variety of plant architectures (root and shoot). In addition, the flexibility of CPlantBox enables its coupling with external modeling tools. For example, we can connect it to an existing mechanistic model of water and carbon flows in the plant, PiafMunch.
Some case studies
Carbon and water flow simulation, growth and structure of the whole plant.
