Predicting root biomass from branching patterns of Douglas-fir root systems

Abstract

There are many examples of branching networks in nature, such as tree crowns, river systems, arteries and lungs. These networks have often been described as being self-similar, or following scale-invariant branching rules, and this property has been used to derive several scaling laws. In this paper we model root systems of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga… (More)
