Origin of transpirationMedieval Latin transpiratio
Transpiration is when a plant absorbs water in its roots.
Transpiration is the process where plants absorb water through the roots and then give off water vapor through pores in their leaves.
An example of transpiration is when a plant absorbs water in its roots.
the act or process of transpiring; specif., the giving off of moisture, etc. through the pores of the skin or through the surface of leaves and other parts of plants
The act or process of transpiring, especially through the stomata of plant tissue or the pores of the skin.
- Transpiration is loss of water by the plant by evaporation, chiefly from the minute pores or stomata on the leaves.
- This arrangement is a method of checking transpiration by creating a still atmosphere above the pore of the stoma, so that water vapour collects in it and diminishes the further outflow of vapour.
- The importance of transpiration, is, however, so great, that these risks must be run.
- Good ventilation is indispensable to allow the worm to give out by transpiration the great quantity of water that it absorbs with the leaf.
- The lower surface of the potato leaf is furnished with numerous organs of transpiration or stomata, which are narrow orifices opening into the leaf and from which moisture is transpired in the form of vapour.
