How to fit nonlinear plant growth models and calculate growth rates: an update for ecologists

Abstract:

1.Plant growth is a fundamental ecological process, integrating across scales from physiology to community dynamics and ecosystem properties. Recent improvements in plant growth modelling have allowed deeper understanding and more accurate predictions for a wide range of ecological issues, including competition among plants, plant-herbivore interactions and ecosystem functioning. 2.One challenge in modelling plant growth is that, for a variety of reasons, relative growth rate (RGR) almost uni...
