What is Transpiration
- Transpiration is the process by which the loss of water from a plant takes place in the form of water vapor.
- Water is absorbed by roots from the soil and transported to the leaves.
- In the leaves, small pores allow water to escape as a vapor.
There are 4 Types of Transpiration
What is Lenticular Transpiration
- Lenticular transpiration is found only in the woody branches and some fruits where lenticels occur.
- The lenticular transpiration is only 0.1% of the total transpiration.
- Lenticular transpiration occurs all day and night because lenticels have no mechanism of closure like Stomata.
- The lenticels connect the atmospheric air with the cortical tissue of the stem through the intercellular spaces present amongst the complementary cells.
