Growth and development of root systems: Geometrical and structural aspects

Acta Biotheoretica 38 (3-4) (1990)
Abstract
The agronomist who wants to study the nutrient and water uptake of roots needs a quantitative three-dimensional dynamic model of the structure of root systems.The model presented takes into account current knowledge about the morphogenesis of root systems. It describes the root system as a set of root axes, characterised by their orders. The morphogenetic properties of root axes differ according to their order. The axes of order 1 are directly inserted on the stem, the axes of order 2 are inserted on axes of order 1, and so on. They tend to be more plagiotropec and to have less vascular bundles as the order increases.
