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 used either to test growth hypotheses on local processes at the organism scale or to generate detailed maps of wood internal structure.
