ProNet-CN is a new multiscale process network integrating biophysical, metabolic, and physio­logical processes of biomass formation across plant scales. It combines the LEAFC3-N model describing the exchange of CO2, water vapor, and energy with a new model of the dynamics of mass balances of main carbon and nitrogen metabolites and its allocation between interacting compartments or organs.
