- This report consists of three major sections which are: progress made on the development of a generic plant growth model, progress made on the holistic ecosystem model, and a summary outlining future directions of our modeling efforts. The major accomplishments of the plant growth modeling have been the identification and implementation of components for the photosynthesis module, development of a plant canopy module, and further refinement of the various modules that make up the basic structure for a generic plant growth mode. Research examined several implementations of a leaf-based, CO₂ responsive, photosynthesis model that incorporates information at the enzyme-kinetics level. Also presented, are several models of forest canopies, transpiration, and photosynthesis.
