DescriptionECOPHYS is one of the early FSTM's that integrated plant physiological and tree architectural models to assess the relative importance of genetic traits in tree growth, and explore the growth response to interacting environmental stresses (Host et al 1999, Isebrands et al 1999, Martin et al 2001). This paper will describe extensions of the ECOPHYS individual tree model to the scale of tree patches distributed across a regional landscape. The complexity of quantifying hourly light interception within the patch canopy has required the use of various high-performance computing platforms.
