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


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)
