Effects of soil heterogeneity on root water uptake under drying conditions and varying transpiration rates|
Water flow in soils is heterogeneous at many scales. In a given representative elementary volume these heterogeneities can be described by an effective hydraulic conductivity. Standard root water uptake models commonly rely on this representative hydraulic conductivity and assume that the hydraulic conductivity of the soil cylinder around the roots is equal to that measured in soil samples representative of the bulk soil.
