MECHA model is out!

Valentin Couvreur and colleagues just released their new model on water flow through roots. Their new article 'Going with the flow: multiscale insights into the composite nature of water transport in roots' is published in Plant Physiology and available online. See publication here.

It describes a new model that simulates the distribution of the water fluxes and potentials between the soil root interface and the xylems vessels. The paper demonstrates how anatomy, plasmodesmata, and membrane permeability control the distribution of water fluxes through roots. You can also try it online! MECHA
