Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperOther chapter contributionpeer-review


LIGNUM is a functional-structural tree model combining the use of L-systems for structural development and a general-purpose programming language for modelling metabolic processes and radiation regimes. We show how both the structural and functional part of LIGNUM, used for a Scots pine model, can be translated into the rule-based language XL, thus offering new possibilities for model reuse and comparison.
