Abstract

Mango trees are characterized by alternate-bearing, i.e. strong flowering and fruiting in onyears, and by phenological asynchronisms. This behavior results from a complex interplay between reproductive and vegetative development. This interplay influences the tree in a quantitative way (% branching, % flowering…) and in a temporal way (date of budburst…). To build a functional-structural model, these factors must be integrated. Our objective was thus to identify and organize the intrinsic factors, most of them being of an architectural nature, that influence the vegetative and reproductive functioning of mango trees
