SummaryA simulation model of the growth of the plant root system is described. Firstly, the numbers and lengths of the laterals derived from a single axis are obtained from specified rates of elongation and branching. Secondly, the vertical distribution of filament lengt his obtained, after specifying the rate of initiation of axes at the crown of the plant and the orientation of successive, short straight segments representing the curved roots. Diagrams of the network can be produced using the… CONTINUE READING
