The role of biomass allocation between lamina and petioles in a game of light competition in a dense stand of an annual plant.

Models of plant three-dimensional (3-D) architecture have been used to find optimal morphological characteristics for light capture or carbon assimilation of a solitary plant. However, optimality theory is not necessarily useful to predict the advantageous strategy of an individual in dense stands, where light capture of an individual is influenced not only by its architecture but also by the architecture of its neighbours. Here, we analysed optimal and evolutionarily stable biomass allocation between the lamina and petiole (evolutionarily stable strategy; ESS) under various neighbour conditions using a 3-D simulation model based on the game theory.
