Optimize Tree Shape: Targeting for Best Light Interception
Keywords: optimization, tree shape, GreenLab model, fitness, light interception
AbstractIt is assumed that plants have a certain kind of fitness so they can optimize their behaviour to maintain a specific target. Optimization algorithm is used to find tree shape that can maximize the light interception. The shape we got is reasonable and looks like a real tree, which proves partly the fitness of plants.
