FSPM-P: towards a general functional-structural plant model for robust and comprehensive model developmentMichael Henke,Winfried Kurth and Gerhard H. Buck-SorlinFrontiers of Computer Science, 2016 View paper
FSPM-P is a not species-specific FSPM, presently restricted to annual or bi-annual plants, but with the potential for extension and further generalization. Model structure is hierarchical and object-oriented, with plant organs being the base-level objects and plant individual and canopy the higher-level objects. Modules for the majority of physiological processes are incorporated (e.g., photosynthesis, organ formation and growth). Simulation runs with several general parameter sets adopted from the literature reproducing a plausible output range for different crops (rapeseed, barley, etc.) in terms of both the dynamics and final values (at harvest time) of model state variables such as assimilate production, organ biomass, leaf area and architecture.
