Abstract : Polar transport in isolated segments of Zea Mays root was verifed using paired simultaneous tracers for Ca and Sr. A model has been presented for determining molar transport rates in the root segments by an improved compartmental glassware system. Sr85 transport exactly parallels variation in Ca45 transport. (Author)
