A model is described which simulates the growth of fibrous root systems. The root growth is specified in terms of growing time, numbers of axes, initiation times of axes, growth rates and branching characteristics of the roots, and characteristics governing the direction of root growth. The model generates a representation of the root system in which the locations of all branches and root tips are recorded in three-dimensional coordinates, and updates this representation in discrete time steps… CONTINUE READING
