Patterns of carbon and nitrogen allocation in trees predicted by a model of optimal plant function
Keywords: Carbon and nitrogen allocation, forest growth model, Norway spruce, optimisation model, photosynthesis, root nitrogen uptake
AbstractAnnual carbon allocation to leaves, stems and roots of trees is predicted by a model that simulates canopy photosynthesis and root nitrogen uptake with the overlying hypothesis that annual wood production is maximised.
