The architecture of a plant
depends on the nature and on the relative arrangement of each of its
parts ; it is, at any given time, the expression of an equilibrium between
endogenous growth processes and exogenous constraints exerted by the environment.
The aim of architectural analysis is to identify and understand these
endogenous processes by means of observation and sometimes experimentation.
Considering the plant as a whole, from germination to death, architectural
analysis is essentially a detailed, comprehensive and dynamic approach of
plant development. Despite their recent origin, architectural concepts
provide a powerful tool for studying plant form. Completed by precise morphological
observations, recent researches in this field have deeply increased our
understanding of plant structure and development and led to the establishment
of a real conceptual and methodological framework for plant form study
and modelling. This paper is a brief and summarised update of our knowledge
on plant architecture and morphology.

Tomato Model: Two Case Studies.
Dr Ep Heuvelink and Menno J. Baker.

Chain Group, (The Netherlands)
A photosynthesis-driven model
for potenial crop growth and yield in tomato, TOMSIM, was used in two case
studies: (1) determination of the number of fruits per truss that results
in maximum fruit yield for different greenhouse climatic conditions, cultivation
practices and crop characteristics, and (2) studying the effect of salinity
stress on optimum fruit number for maximum yield. Crop growth rate is
simulated as daily crop gross assimilation rate minus maintenance respiration
rate, multiplied by a conversion factor for assimilates to dry mass. Dry
matter distribution is simulated based on the sink strength (demand for
assimilates) of the plant organs, which is quantified by their potential
growth rate, relative to the total sink strength of all sinks together.
Within the plant, individual fruit trusses and vegetative units (three
leaves and stem internodes between two trusses) are distinguished. Leaf
area is simulated, based on simulated leaf dry mass and specific leaf
area (SLA). SLA depends on the day of the year, being lowest in summer.
Number of fruits per truss is an input to the model, hence, flower and/or
fruit abortion is not simulated. Fruit yield is expected to show an optimum
response to fruit load, as a higher fruit load increases partitioning to
the fruit, possibly at the expense of total crop growth, because of reduced
leaf area index (LAI). Optimum fruit number per truss was lower at reduced
global radiation level, when no CO2-enrichment was applied, with earlier
leaf picking, reduced SLA and larger potential fruit size. Salinity stress
was implemented in the model as a reduction in SLA with increased salinity.
Yield was strongly reduced as LAI was reduced. Optimum fruit number per
truss decreased linearly with increasing salinity. At higher salinity levels
maintaining optimum fruit numbers (less than seven) resulted in a reduction
in yield loss, compared to maintaining a fixed number of seven fruits per
truss. The model enables to quantify the relations between fruit load, total
dry mass production and fruit yield under different conditions. It can evaluate
conditions that cannot be attained experimentally, which may be important
in theoretical studies.

Plant growth modelling rigorous study
is a real challenge for researchers and scientists, due to the high level
of multidisciplinary aspects to be integrated in. Through a mathematical
formalism, a plant functional-structural model needs to be developped based
on knowledge from botany, agronomy, forestry, eco-physiology and computer
sciences. Specialists in each discipline have proposed variety models,
but most of these models are limited to their own field. It is well recognized
that the unfunctioning and the limitation of these models are due to their
mono-disciplinary aspects. A dialogue between the various scientific domains
involved in plant modelling is not obvious. It needs to chose, simplify
and adapt the relevant knowledge from each other that is necessary and
sufficient to build a plant structural-functional model. This needs also
to define a right level of observations. Each notion is simplified, but
the interactions between them give new theoritical results and applications.
Several questions are discussed in this work. How can botany give keys
to organize the multi level information inside the plant topological structure
and eventually speed up the growth computing ? What kind of mathematical
formalism is needed to introduce powerful tools of automatic control into
plant modelling ? The goal of this paper is to propose some simple choices,
from both biological and mathematical viewpoints, and adapt them to build
an efficient dynamical model. With this model, it is possible to insure
optimisation and control that are needed in agronomy.
