Canopy photosynthetic CO2 uptake rate, instead of leaf photosynthetic CO2 assimilation rate, correlates with biomass production. We aim to develop a fully integrated model of canopy photosynthesis, which includes not only the prediction of the microclimates inside a canopy but also the related biophysical and biochemical processes in a leaf. Here we report our current status of the model of canopy photosynthesis, which includes the plant architecture, a ray-tracing algorithm, leaf energy… CONTINUE READING
