where the flux qh1 defined by Eq. (2.4) is the specific (per unit area) heat flux, the factor DT/11 =(T — Ti)/l1 is the temperature gradient, Ti and T are the temperatures of the leaf interior and the environment (atmosphere). The second item is
where the specific flux qw is defined by Eq. (2.3), and yw is the specific enthalpy of water vapour; the factor DCw/Cwl2 = [Cw — Csw(T)]/Cwl2 is the gradient of its potential, Dmw / l2, at temperature T. The third item
