L-Pea: an architectural model of pea (Pisum sativum) developmentRomain Barillot,Pierre Huynh,Abraham J Escobar-Gutiérrez and Didier CombesProceedings of the 7th International Conference on Functional-Structural Plant Models, 2013 View paper
The L-Pea model is a deterministic model simulating the dynamic reconstructions of pea architecture. It is based on L-systems formalism and consists of modules for ‘vegetative development’ and ‘organ extension’. The above ground architecture is represented as a succession of phytomers that compose main stems and branches. L-Pea model is used to represent realistic/measured architectures of pea plants (resulting from the integration of environmental effects) but is not designed to reproduce the responses of plants to the environment.
