Three-dimensional plant architecture and sunlit-shaded patterns: a stochastic model of light dynamics in canopies (2018)
Working Paper

Background and Aims Diurnal changes in solar position and intensity combined with the structural complexity of plant architecture result in highly variable and dynamic light patterns within the plant canopy. This affects productivity through the comp... Read More about Three-dimensional plant architecture and sunlit-shaded patterns: a stochastic model of light dynamics in canopies.

High-Resolution Three-Dimensional Structural Data Quantify the Impact of Photoinhibition on Long-Term Carbon Gain in Wheat Canopies in the Field (2015)
Journal Article

Photoinhibition reduces photosynthetic productivity; however, it is difficult to quantify accurately in complex canopies partly because of a lack of high-resolution structural data on plant canopy architecture, which determines complex fluctuations o...

Exploiting heterogeneous environments: does photosynthetic acclimation optimize carbon gain in fluctuating light? (2015)
Journal Article

Plants have evolved complex mechanisms to balance the efficient use of absorbed light energy in photosynthesis with the capacity to use that energy in assimilation, so avoiding potential damage from excess light. This is particularly important under... Read More about Exploiting heterogeneous environments: does photosynthetic acclimation optimize carbon gain in fluctuating light?.
