925 Define transpiration

Page history last edited by HL-Akira 10 years, 10 months ago

Back to 9 2 assessment statements

 

Transpiration is the loss of water vapour from leaves and other aerial parts of the plant. The water is lost through opening called stomata. The opening and closing of the stomata are due to specialized cells called guard cells. Transpired water has to be replaced by the intake of water at the roots. There is a continuous stream of water from the roots to the upper parts of the plant.
