Some existing mathematical models describing the kinetics of the plant
growth are discussed. On the base of the Boltzman principle of
superposition, a new approach to the mathematical description of the
plant's characteristics is proposed. As an example of this, mathematical
description of the dependence of nitrate reductase activity in the leaves
of Lycopersicon esculentum on the light memory has been proved.
