This paper presents a modelling framework to analyse the reflectance spectrum of green vegetation based on very simplified radiative transfer theory and classical mixture analysis. A data set was composed that associated high quality laboratory spectra with a number of chosen physical and chemical measurements. These data were used in an attempt to deduce empirical in vivo absorption coefficients for proteins, cellulose and lignin. These were then used in the inversion of the model to determine the biochemical composition from the reflectance spectrum.
