Mechanisms: Comparative Behaviour
The aim of this paper is to consider the relations between the different hypotheses, the problems of trying to distinguish between them by critical experiments, and the aspects of phloem behaviour, or of the characteristics of the sieve elements, which remain unresolved or unexplained on each of these hypotheses. In particular I would like to examine the relation between any form of activated mass flow and the inevitable Münch flow in the conduits.
