Carbon, water and nitrogen flows are tighly linked together in the plant. A change in one of the processes will automatically influence the others.
In order to be able to approach interactions from a quantitative point of view, we created a web interface for a plant growth model, PlaNet-Maize. PlaNet-Maize is a so-called structure-function model. The model explicitly simulates the growth of the plant in space and time (4D), as well as its interactions with the environment. The different input variables of the model are identical to the concepts seen in the course. It allows to visualize, in a numerical way, what are the effects of a stress on the growth of the plant.
We ask you to run the model, through the web interface, tu quantitativelly observe how the different processes interact with each others.
A modeling approach to determine the importance of dynamic regulation of plant hydraulic conductivities on the water uptake dynamics in the soil-plant-atmosphere system.
