Foreword: studying plants with functional–structural models


Functional–structural plant models (FSPM) explore the manifold relations between a plant’s structure and the processes that underlie its growth and development. Here we introduce selected papers presented at the 5th International Workshop on Functional–Structural Plant Models, held in Napier, New Zealand, 2007. The papers range from the microscopic scale of meristems to the macroscopic scales of whole plants and plant communities, and cover a wide range of plants, from algae to trees. The topics include examples of comprehensive functional–structural models, models of key processes such as partitioning of resources, software for modelling plants and plant environment, data acquisition techniques and applications of functional–structural plant models
