Modeling Seasonal Patterns of Carbohydrate Storage and Mobilization in Peach Trees
Keywords: carbon budgets, carbon reserves, stored carbohydrates, perennial plants, tree carbon budget modeling, xylem storage
AbstractStorage of carbohydrate is essential for perennial plants survival, but its modeling is often unsatisfactory. We studied the dynamics of reserve storage and mobilization in Peach trees and introduced a modeling approach that consider storage as an active sink rather than a passive buffer as frequently done in carbon-based models of tree growth.
