The following is a list of major publications from my lab related to mathematical and computer modeling. The basic hypothesis behind all of them is that, if "we" know what we think we know, then it can be expressed mathematically, it will have predictive power, and the predictions can be tested. NSF, I should note, has never bought this.

Cheeseman, J. M. (1991) PATCHY - Simulating and visualizing the effects of stomatal patchiness on photosynthetic CO2 exchange studies. Plant, Cell and Environment, 14, 593-599.
Cheeseman, J. M. (1993) Plant growth modelling without integrating mechanisms. Plant, Cell and Environment, 16, 137-147.
Cheeseman, J. M. & Lexa, M. (1996) Gas exchange: models and measurements. Photosynthesis and the Environment (ed N. R. Baker), pp. 223-240. Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht.
Cheeseman JM, R Barreiro & M Lexa. (1996) Plant growth modelling and the integration of shoot and root activities without communicating messengers: Opinion. Plant and Soil, 185, 51-64 (Invited contribution, peer reviewed.)
Lexa, M. & Cheeseman, J. M. (1997) Growth and nitrogen relations in reciprocal grafts of wild-type and nitrate reductase-deficient mutants of pea (Pisum sativum L. var Juneau). Journal of Experimental Botany, 48, 1241-1250.
Cheeseman JM. (1989) PHOTO - a simulation of C3 photosynthesis for the DOS (gasp) environment. A compiled version of the model for downloading.
Cheeseman JM (misc dates) Growth Models - various programs for fitting growth data using polynomials or splines... modified after Hunt (1982) and Hunt and Parsons (1981) and used in the Physiologia Plantarum articles available elsewhere on this site. I hope that there is a readme file accompanying the programs.
Note... these are compiled versions of Fortran programs that were originally written for DOS machines. They should still run in the command window on Windows machines.
