Developing an Object-Oriented Cotton Plant Model: Mechanistic Implications

R.A. Sequeira, M.E. Makela, K.M. El-Zik, and N.D. Stone


A new paradigm for modeling biological systems has been adapted as the basic structure for a new mechanistic cotton model. Object-oriented programming (OOP) has become increasingly popular among computer programmers for a wide variety of applications. Some features of OOP are very useful for modeling biological systems and allow researchers to address questions which have been difficult or impossible to study using conventional mathematical and simulation models.
