Because the Stomata on the underside of the leaf have to open (so stomata are turgid) to allow for the exchange of CO2 and O2 so photosynthesis can occur. As this process takes place water diffuses out of the stomata.

Because the stoma must open to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide, and water vapor is lost in the process.

What is the transpiration process?

Transpiration is the evaporation of water from the surface of the plant__mainly from leaves. Water particles evaporate from the surface of the leaves, and more water particles move up within the plant to take their place. This process continues down though the plant with particles continually moving up from the roots.The loss of water in plants to the air though the stomata of plant leaves.
