A theory of the self-sustained turbulence is developed for resistive plasma in toroidal devices. Pseudoclassical confinement is obtained in the low-temperature limit. As temperature increases, the current diffusivity prevails upon resistivity, and the turbulence nature changes so as to recover the L-mode transport. Comparison with experimental observation on this transition is made. The Hartmann number is also given.
