Model description

Dynamic plant model representing root system growth and 3D architecture, from the root segment scale to the whole plant. Roots are grouped into different types, each type being characterized by a set of parameters. The model represents several developmental processes that contribute to the dynamics.

Some case studies

Generic model used to represent a large diversity of plant species
