It is a model of Arabidopsis development created from scratch in XL and parameterized using the data provided in Muendermann et al. (2005, Plant Phys 139: 960-968). Part of it is a model of hormonal regulation of branching, taking into account auxin, strigolactone and cytokinin signalling, and the effects of light quality (red / far-red ratio). It simulates plasticity in Arabidopsis branching depending on the light environment, manipulation of plant structure (e.g. decapitation). It also simulates various Arabidopsis mutants.
