Computational Modeling of the Growth of Plants

14:30 - 15:00 KAUST

Plant growth is a complex, dynamic pattern for which the underlying biological mechanisms are still unknown. In this talk, a mathematical model of 3D tree growth is discussed that emphasizes the impact of self-organization of branches in space on tree form. The model's relatively low-dimensional parameter space captures a large diversity of realistic tree architectures.
