Modeling spatial competition for light in plant populations with the porous medium equation
We consider a plant’s local leaf area index as a spatially continuous variable, subject to particular reaction–diffusion dynamics of allocation, senescence and spatial propagation. The latter notably incorporates the plant’s tendency to form new leaves in bright rather than shaded locations. Applyin...
