This paper reviews the history of the MAESTRO model. The ideas that led to the development of the model and the wide range of applications (canopy structure, agroforestry, plant physiology, acclimatization to photosynthetically active radiation, analysis of flux data, model heirarchies, and forest growth modelling) for which it has been used are discussed.
