Transpiration in Plants
- a component of the vascular plants' transport system.
- exists in both xylem and phloem forms.
- Water transfers from roots to stems and leaves via the xylem.
- Phloem: The system responsible for moving food generated during photosynthesis from leaves to stems and roots.
- the outermost part of a plant's stem or root.
- within the vascular bundles but beneath the epidermis.
- Plants' leaves, flowers, roots, and stems are all covered in a single layer of cells.
- It stops water evaporation, controls gas exchange, and absorbs water and mineral nutrients.
Transpiration takes place through the _____? (A) Vascular bundles (B) Cortex (C) Stomata (D) Epidermis
The stomata are used for transpiration. The epidermis of stem, leaves, and other organs have stomata that help in gas exchange.
