Abstract

Abstract. The allocation of carbon in a vegetative barley plant is described as an open, three‐compartment model; the three compartments are soluble (which exchanges material with the environment), storage, and structure (both of which exchange material with the soluble compartment). The model shows a good fit with data on 14C kinetics following 14CO2 feeding and some of its assumptions, properties and implications are discussed.
