Root hairs are known to be important in the uptake of sparingly soluble nutrients by plants, but quantitative understanding of their role in this is weak. This limits, for example, the breeding of… (More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) secretes far smaller amounts of metal-complexing phytosiderophores (PS) than other grasses. But there is increasing evidence that it relies on PS secretion for its zinc (Zn)… (More)
Major research efforts are targeting the improved performance of root systems for more efficient use of water and nutrients by crops. However, characterizing root system architecture (RSA) is… (More)
A multiscale approach is presented to model growth of hairy roots. On the macroscopic scale, a continuous model is derived, which includes growth and nutrient transport. Water transport is considered… (More)
In this paper, we extend previous work on the mathematical modeling of oxygen transport in biological tissues (Matzavinos et al., 2009). Specifically, we include in the modeling process the arterial… (More)
In the preface we present a short overview of articles included in the issue “Bifurcations and pattern formation in biological applications” of the journal Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena.
Plants develop diverse root system architectures (RSAs) to capture soil water and nutrients. Understanding the development of RSAs is difficult because they consist of numerous interconnected roots… (More)
In this paper, we study the well-posedness of a coupled Darcy–Oseen resolvent problem, describing the fluid flow between free-fluid domains and porous media separated by a semipermeable membrane. The… (More)
With methods of potential theory, we develop a representation of a solution of the coupled Stokes–Darcy model in a Lipschitz domain for boundary data in H−1/2. Copyright © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
