Can anyone recommend an IBM-compatible computer simulation of
photosynthesis and transpiration that has an interactive format?  
I have been using an old Apple-compatible program written by Dr. Gary
Hannan at Eastern Michigan Univ. which is quite good but our campus
Apple's have nearly all been "plucked or put into cold storage."

The Hannan program generates data and graphs for transpiration rate
as a function of leaf length, stomatal density, stomatal radius,
stomatal depth; and environmental factors such as RH, temperature,
etc.  The beauty of the program is that students can really get into
it, test hypotheses, and see the effects of the interactions of
morphological factors and environment.

Please respond with suggested alternatives.   Thanks!
