In a few words, what is transpiration?
Transpiration is the process of water movement through a plant and its evaporation from leaves, stems and flowers. It is an important part of the water cycle. It happens in all plants, even those without leaves.
What is Transpiration?
97% of transpiration in plants is due to evaporation from the leaf surface. On average, a single tree can transpire 100-400 liters of water per day.
In which of the following processes is transpiration involved?
- A. Photosynthesis
- B. Respiration
- C. Condensation
- D. Evaporation
Humidity An increase of water in the air will slow down transpiration Wind speed An increase in wind speed will speed up transpiration Rainfall An increase in rainfall will slow down transpiration
Factors that effect transpiration

- Increased humidity
- Increased rainfall
- Decreased windspeed
- Decreased Humidity
