Uptake, in-plant transport, and local accumulation of organic
chemicals by plants are influenced by plant characteristics, properties
of the chemical and the soil, and by environmental conditions. Evaluations
of plant contamination required by regulatory agencies cannot be
made experimentally for the many thousands of xenobiotic chemicals in
existence or being...
CTSPAC is a mathematical model for coupled transport of water, solutes, and thermal
energy in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. The mathematical structure consists
of coupling a model for transport through soil (soil submodel) to one for xylem and phloem
transport (plant submodel). The modeling approach is based on discrete space conceptualization...
