Leaf Structure Vascular Network and Sugar Transport in Trees

Like human beings, plants require an efficient vascular system to keep the vital parts of the body alive and allow them to grow. In plants it is vital to transport water from the ground via the roots to the leaves and this is accomplished by the xylem. Another sys­tem, the phloem, transports dissolved molecules, mostly sugars, from the leaves, where they are produced, to the new shoots and all the way down to the roots. The me­cha­nisms for these important flows are poorly understood in detail and represent an impor­tant challenge in modern fluid mechanics, including surface tension, narrow pores, membranes and osmosis. In trees these problems are particularly striking, due to their large size and longevity. 

In this project you can learn to use master advanced fluid dynamics in a biological context as well as understanding networks. You will also learn some biology, in particular related to plants and interact with many interesting colleagues from around the world.
