Ideas for Development

Here you will find ideas that I stopped pushing through peer review but that I offer as valuable.  An example is my finding that mass flow of water in soil does not increase net delivery of nutrients to plant roots over the rate provided by diffusion in quiescent soil water (flattening of the diffusion gradient cancels the gain from mass flow).  Other ideas have not yet been put out for publication.  Some are relatively small in scope but intriguing, such as my formulation of water flow in liquid and vapor phases in plants on a common footing, deficit in mole fraction rather than the formulations used today, water potential in the liquid phase and mole fraction in the vapor phase.
