This is a very simple generic vegetation model, with just one state variable (plant biomass), and two processes: assimilation and respiration. In the original paper, the model is used twice, once for the trees and once for the grass under the trees, with the grass receiving light not intercepted by the trees. The model provided here is just for a single vegetation component.
