3 MOTIVATION Evaluate carbon exchange plants-atmosphere Artificial neural networks (ANNs) Non-linear problems Potential to be used in ecophysiology Ecophysiologic process (photosynthesis): non-linear Modeling photosynthesis in Hymenaea courbaril with ANNs Initial step to quantify CO 2 absorption by plants
4 OBJECTIVE Modeling the daily cycle of photosynthesis in Hymenaea courbaril (jatobá), in leaf scale, at three levels of the plants with artificial neural networks.
5 MODELING PHOTOSYNTHESIS WITH ANNs Multilayer perceptron (MLP) with backpropagation training algorithm. Supervised training: input and target vector pairs. Collected data were used for the training: 65% for the training and 35% for the test.

Different combinations of the input variables.
8 RESULTS Results for training of the ANNs corresponding to three combinations and three levels. Combination Mean Relative Error (%) Level 1Level 2Level
9 RESULTS Results for test of the ANNs corresponding to three combinations and three levels. Combination Mean Relative Error (%) Level 1Level 2Level
11 RESULTS Results of modeling the daily photosynthesis cycle for combination 3 corresponding to level 1.
12 CONCLUSION Modeling photosynthesis with ANNs showed to be very efficient. Results corresponding to combination three, levels one and two, had an average error of 8%, and to level three, 6%. The variables that influenced the good performance of the ANNs were CO 2 R and CO 2 S. The results suggest that the ANNs technique could be useful for forecasts of carbon assimilation by tropical trees.
