Maximum entropy production and plant optimization theories

Dewar, Roderick

Description

Plant ecologists have proposed a variety of optimization theories to explain the adaptive behaviour and evolution of plants from the perspective of natural selection ('survival of the fittest'). Optimization theories identify some objective function such
