This review presents the available theories for turbulent transport coefficients, particularly ion and electron thermal diffusivities, in a way that will facilitate a programme of testing models against data. It provides a brief description of the basis for each theory to place it in context and then presents the resulting turbulent diffusivity. Particular emphasis is placed on the validity conditions under which the expressions may be used; this is important when subjecting them to meaningful tests against data.
