Title(s):Main Title: Modeling of root water uptake responses for heterogeneously distributed soil water
Description(s):Abstract: A simulation study was conducted using a three-dimensional soil and root model. The soil domain was split in two hydraulically independent compartments that were partially irrigated. An additional signal, generated at the root tips as a function of root xylem pressure was implemented with a particle tracking algorithm to investigate the effect of hormonal signaling in case of partial drought stress. Different plant responses were modeled and compared. Actual transpiration of the simulation with anisohydric behavior always met potential transpiration and had thus the highest water exploitation with the lowest plant pressures. The simulation with isohydric behavior started to reduce transpiration after the plant pressure head reached a predefined threshold. In a third simulation transpiration reduction was modeled as a function of hormonal signaling and showed a continuous adjustment of actual transpiration. The forth simulation described a response to hormonal signaling and plant pressure head. This simulation showed the strongest response with the lowest actual transpiration. The influence of water flow velocities on signaling was examined comparing the particle tracking algorithm with an instantaneous signal. In cases of prolonged drought stress water flow velocities are close to zero and particles are trapped in the root system.
