Transport of Water
The whole field of water transport in cells and tissues was recently reviewed in an extensive and scholarly manner by House (1974). The content of the present chapter is much more modest being mostly limited to the phenomenological description of water transport across membranes by the methods of steady-state thermodynamics (see p. 172), as developed by Kedem and Katchalsky (1958).
