Simulated interaction between tree structure and xylem and phloem transport in 3D tree crowns using model LIGNUM
Keywords: phloem translocation, sap flow, photosynthesis, transpiration, tree architecture
AbstractWe have implemented xylem and phloem transport model (Hölttä et al. 2006) with 3D tree model LIGNUM to study how structural traits in tree crown influence the transport in branched architecture with observed transpiration and photosynthetic response to driving environmental variables. We study how structural traits in tree crown influence the xylem and phloem transport and associated pressure gradients when observed transpiration and photosynthetic response to driving environmental variables are applied in branched architecture.
