    Modelling growth of the cambial surface

    Individual tree growth models traditionally focus on apical growth and architecture; however, cambial growth equally contributes to plant form and function. Sellier et al.¬†present a model of cambial growth based on level sets, a technique used in computational physics. It simulates tree shape and xylem structure resulting from arbitrarily defined growth functions, and can be […] More
