Modelling diffusion of resistance on the way of molecules CO2 to the green leaf

Pages: 69-76


Consecutive resistance to molecules CO2 on a way of diffusion to a green leaf is considered. As the major regulator of process of diffusion the stomatol device of a leaf is considered which resistance is caused by factors of an environment.
