Abstract

In this work we report a dynamic biophysical model of CO2 assimilation for Agave pacifica. Agave pacifica is a desert plant with Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM). The model has four components, namely, stomatal conductance, malic acid synthesis, malic acid depletion and C3 photosynthesis. The independent variables of the model are photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) and internal and external CO2 concentrations. The structure of the assembled mathematical model for CO2 assimilation of Agave pacifica depicts the chronological or sequential progression of the biochemical reactions of the CAM process through the inter-connected mathematical equations of its four components. The model was programmed in SIMULINK, a block-oriented program.
