A mathematical model of root uptake of cations incorporating root turnover, distribution within the plant, and recycling of absorbed species

Abstract:

Understanding the movement of cations in soil, particularly trace metals, is required in many applications such as phytoremediation and pollution control. A dynamic mechanistic model has been developed to describe the long-term root uptake of a surface-applied, strongly adsorbed, pollutant metal cation, such as radiocaesium, from soil. It consists of two submodels. The first calculates uptake per unit root length at a local scale over a root's lifetime, for various initial conditions. The sec...
