Abstract

Mathematical modeling of plant canopy photosynthesis, productivity, and growth as a separate branch of biogeophysics dates back to 1953 when the classical work on plant canopy photosynthesis in relation to photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) was published by Monsi and Saeki. Refinements in observational techniques and new experimental data during the 1960–1980 time frame led to a need for more sophisticated models of the radiation regime in plant canopies.
