Hydrodynamics of steady state phloem transport with radial leakage of solute

Cabrita, Paulo; Thorpe, Michael; Huber, Gregor


Long-distance phloem transport occurs under a pressure gradient generated by the osmotic exchange of water associated with solute exchange in source and sink regions. But these exchanges also occur along the pathway, and yet their physiological role has almost been ignored in mathematical models of phloem transport. Here we present a steady state model for transport phloem which allows solute leakage, based on the Navier-Stokes and convection-diffusion equations which describe fluid motion...[Show more]
