The mathematics of linked optimisation for water and nitrogen use in a canopy

Buckley, Thomas; Miller, Jeffrey; Farquhar, Graham


We develop, and discuss the implementation of, a mathematical framework for inferring optimal patterns of water and nitrogen use. Our analysis is limited to a time scale of one day and a spatial scale consisting of the green canopy of one plant, and we assume that this canopy has fixed quantities of nitrogen and water available for use in photosynthesis. The efficiencies of water and nitrogen use, and the interactions between the two, are strongly affected by physiological and physical...[Show more]
