Geometrically saturated growth and the pipe model of tree form
Keywords: self-thinning, pipe model of tree form, self-similarity, geometric saturation, trunk geometry
AbstractWe combine our self-thinning model of geometrically saturated growth with the pipe model of Shinozaki et al. to yield a composite model that can be used to make predictions about quantities traditionally found in functional models of tree growth.
