Understanding Root Behavior

Abstract:

Since Darwin's puzzled observation of root oscillatory behaviors, also known as circumnutations, the reasons and factors that regulate the amplitude of these oscillations remain largely unknown. In this talk, I will put forward a novel hypothesis and a simple unified model of stimulus-driven behavior capable of explaining experimental data and generating novel predictions. I will also mention ongoing work in using this model to control an artificial root system in physics-based simulations and in a novel robotic device.
