The phytohormone auxin plays an essential role in many aspects of plant growth and development. Its patterning, intercellular transport, and means of signaling have been extensively studied both in experiments and computational models. Here, we present a review of models of auxin-regulated development in different plant tissues. This includes models of organ initiation in the shoot apical meristem, development of vascular strands in leafs and stems, and auxin-related functioning in roots. The examples show how mathematical modeling can help to examine expected and unexpected behavior of the system, challenge our knowledge and hypotheses, obtain quantitative results, or suggest new experiments and ways to approach a problem.
