These results demonstrate the impracticability of using physical equations to imitate physiological phenomena in nature. Such equations usually postulate that soil moisture decreases with proximity to the sphere of influence of the roots. Within the subtropical and desert areas under review, studies have shown the opposite state of affairs to prevail after the available soil moisture has been absorbed by the roots.
