BACKGROUND Plant structural (i.e. architectural) models explicitly describe plant morphology by providing detailed descriptions of the display of leaf and stem surfaces within heterogeneous canopies and thus provide the opportunity for modelling the functioning of plant organs in their microenvironments. The outcome is a class of structural-functional crop models that combines advantages of current structural and process approaches to crop modelling. ALAMEDA is such a model.
