Краткий осмотр (реферат): Wave phenomena have been observed in numerous experiments with whole plants. One of possible mechanisms of the long-distance high-speed signaling in high plants is connected with concentration waves that can propagate through the conducting systems of plants. One-dimensional axisymmetrical stationary flow of a viscous liquid with osmotically active dissolved component through a long thin rigid cylindrical tube is considered as a model of the conducting vessel of the plant. Constant concentrations of the component at the inlet and outlet of the vessel are maintained by the live cells of the vegetative organs of the plant. Nonlinear concentration distribution along the tube and the parabolic velocity profiles are obtained. Propagation of small excitations of concentrations and velocities along the tube is considered. Expression for the wave velocity U is presented. The range U=20-60 m/s is obtained by numerical estimations at wide variations of the parameters within the physiological limits. The time delay in signal transmission in the system root-leaves corresponds to the experimental data. In that way the concentration waves can mediate high-speed transferring of information between the organs of plants.
