Formation of crown structure in Scots pine trees
The ecosystem model MicroForest describes the development of trees, ground vegetation and forest soil in a Scots pine stand based on coupling carbon and nitrogen fluxes in the system. Here, we simulated the crown development in a mature Scots pine stand assuming the semi-autonomous behaviour of the branches with optimizing C and N allocation simultaneously.
