This thesis is concerned with a study of the ionic
relations and electrical properties of root cells in both
intact growing roots and in root tissue segments of Vicia
faba. A picture of the ionic state of the cells is built up
from the measurement of intracellular potentials, ion concen
trations and ion fluxes. The active or passive transport of
each ion was considered using a criterion based on electro
chemical theory, and an attempt was made to confirm these
results by a study of the metabolic effects on potassium fluxes
and the intracellular potential.
