Mathematical modelling of plant development

Mat Disney invited to speak in Columbus, Ohio

Mathematical modelling of plant development

Dr. Mat Disney was invited to present his work at the Mathematical Modelling of Plant Development Workshop held at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, from September 27-October 1st.

The Workshop brought together scientists interested in the complex interplay of genetic and environmental conditions on plant development, and the uses of new mathematical and experimental techniques to elucidate such issues.

Mat presented a paper, Leaf to forest: 3D modelling for quantifying and understanding radiation interactions in vegetation, on the use of 3D simulation models to understand how light interacts with vegetation, and how remote sensing from aircraft and satellites can be used to exploit this understanding, for example in detecting and quantifying  the impacts of fire in savanna systems.
