Plants transpire to keep themselves cool. << wtf?...

Answer by: Avni Mehta

Um, plants transpire to create tension that then causes transport of water up from the roots in xylem. So, in simple words, plants transpire because it needs to take up water.

When plants are taking up more water than it is transpiring, then they do something called guttation, which is a forced expulsion of water (dew on the grass in the morning).

Answer by: Jasper Kang actually transpiration does also help to keep plants cool along with the other stuff :)

This process is not necessary because without transpiration the plant would die because it would not be taking water up from the soil and it would not take in carbon dioxide and let off oxygen.

Transpiration is able to occur through the stomata of leaves. It also occurs in other non-aerial parts of plants, including stems, flowers and roots.
