What does transpiration mean?
Transpiration is the release (evaporation) of water from a plant, typically through the undersides of its leaves. This is for the same purpose as perspiration in some animals: to cool the plant. It also keeps the stomata (pores) open for carbon dioxide to enter. The water flow from the roots to the leaves carries minerals to the plant tissues.
Plants absorb water through their roots and then give up water vapour through the pores in their leaves.
Kid's bite-sized explanation
Transpiration is most similar to sweating in humans. Transpiration cools plants beginning from the roots, outward through the leaves. But rather than seeing it, like humans get sweat on their skins, plant's transpiration (sweating) is more of a vapor.
Photosynthesis & Respiration, Decomposition Transpiration transpiration Transpiration. This answer depends on the options you were given. If the choices were photosynthesis, burning of fossil fuels, and the decomposition of plants and animals accompanied by transpiration, then transpiration is your answer. Transpiration, unlike the rest of the processes, is not part of the carbon cycle, but in fact the water cycle. Respiration Transpiration transpiration.
Hard to answer because transpiration rate is affected by many factors. This is from wikipedia The rate of transpiration is directly related to the degree of stomatal opening, and to the evaporative demand of the atmosphere surrounding the leaf. The amount of water lost by a plant depends on its size, along with the surrounding light intensity, temperature, humidity, and wind speed (all of which influence evaporative demand). Soil water supply and soil temperature can…
