Integrative models for analyzing jointly shoot growth and branching patterns
Keywords: branching pattern, generalized linear model, growth pattern, semi-Markov switching regression model
AbstractThe branching pattern of a shoot may be influenced by numerous factors varying along the shoot such as the internode length, the leaf surface or the local curvature. We introduce a generalization of hidden semi-Markov chains for categorical response variables that incorporates explanatory variables varying with the index parameter. Using this model, we demonstrate the influence of the growth pattern of a shoot on its immediate branching.
