A COMPOSITE TRANSPORT MODEL is presented which explains the variability in the ability of roots to take up water and responses of water uptake to different factors. The model is based on detailed measurements of 'root hydraulics' both at the level of excised roots (root hydraulic conductivity, Lpr) and root cells (membrane level; cell Lp) using pressure probes and other techniques. The composite transport model integrates apoplastic and cellular components of radial water flow across the root… Expand
