In contrast to woody plants, clonal plants mainly forage in horizontal direction for resources, and develop a completely different architecture than unitary plants. For clonal plants, apical dominance, branching (or “spacer”) angles and lengths are strong drivers of the spatial architecture and resource use by clonal plants (Callaghan et al. 1990, de Kroon & Schieving 1991).
