Modeling parthenium weed early canopy architecture in response to environmental factors and the impacts on biological control activity of the summer rust
Keywords: L-systems, 3D model, canopy architecture, Parthenium hysterophorus, Puccinia xanthii var. parthenii-hysterophorae, environment
AbstractAn L-systems based 3D canopy architecture model is created for simulating and visualising the early growth of parthenium weed in response to four environmental factors (temperature, CO2, soil moisture and plant density) and the activity of the summer rust. The outcomes provide a tool to help study the interaction between an invasive weed, a biological control agent and the environment.
