  • Plant transport physiologists have developed a range of models describing the movement of ions across cell membranes. However, while substantial progress has been made towards providing precise descriptions of the mechanisms underlying these fluxes, important instances remain in which the prevailing models cannot account for repeated observations, particularly in terms of energy transformations. As we shall show, disagreements with experimental findings may entail a revision of the proposed… CONTINUE READING
