... but evrything else affecting transpiration remains the same. Temperature affects transpiration by speeding up the water molecules, not by altering stomatal opening, so temperature must be kept constant. The best way would probably be to measure transpiration rate and stomatal opening at different ... course of the experiment would not have a significant effect on transpiration (because less leaves = less transpiration). This also has its difficulties, though. Say you do 6 different times. This will invoilve removing 6 leaves. This would be a significant leaf loss for a plant unless it had about ...
Question: transpiration
transpiration Hi, I'm studing the hydrological cycle in geography, and I dont understand the term transpiration and how it occurs in the leaves of trees. Thank you. Hi, Transpiration refers to the way that vegetation releases water vapour to the atmosphere through leaves. Not from moisture being ... - but for geography that's about all you need to know. Obviously transpiration ( and evaporation rates) are higher in areas such as rainforest, and lowest in cold dry regions where the trees are coniferous. The small, spikey leaves of conifers reduce transpiration. I hope that this helps. Ian

Transpiration rates I am currently doing a practice planning exercise on how certain factors affect transpiration. I have chosen temperature as the factor to control, but i need to know WHY temperature increases transpiration. All i can find is that higher temp. increases the rate of transpiration ...
... LEAF AFFECT THE RATE OF TRANSPIRATION? I haven't started and i have no idea what im doing!! I really need a B in Biology!!! Where can i get help with coursework?! Thanks Vikio xXx You would expect an increase in surface area of a leaf to provide an increase in transpiration, because the increased ... then it is difficult to use a potometer to measure transpiration. I would suggest that you use weight loss of the leaf over a given time, after removal from the plant. You will have to assume that the weight loss is solely due to transpiration, but that is a reasonable assumption to make. In any ...
transpiration and translocation distinguish between transpiration and translocation. Transpiration is the loss of water vapour from a plants leaves. The water first evaporates from cells inside a leaf, it then escapes through the stomata on the undersides of the leaves. Translocation is the movement ...
Exchange Question: Transpiration experiment
Transpiration experiment which is a better experiment to show transpiration? Can I do an experiment like using a plastic bag, a twine on a plant to show how the water from the plant is goes into the bag? here is a simple transpiration experiment: Simple Experiment to Show Transpiration Materials a ...
Leaf area effect on transpiration rate I have been given this title and told that I will be provided with a glass potomer, 1 twig of 6 to 9 leaves, and all the other necessary equipment, but I do not know where to start in regards to writing up my method please help Thank you The exact method will ... design of glass potometer you have. Basically, you need to measure the transpiration rate with all the leaves on and then reove a number of leaves and see what happens to the transpiration rate. You will have to measure the total area of the leaves in each case, not just say how many there are ...
Question: Transpiration
Transpiration An experiment was set up to investigate transpiration. The same amount of soil was put into two identical pots and a plant was put into each. One plant had all its leaves removed . Both were given the same amount of water at the begining of the experiment. The pots were covered in ... at the end of each day for a week. a) Why were the pots covered in plastic bags? b) What was being lost to make the plants lose mass? a Transpiration is the loss of water from the leaves. Therefore, you don't want the results affected by water loss from the soil. The plastic bag prevents this. b ...
Effect of wind speed on transpiration You need to control more than wind speed (which you are not actually controlling, because you are varying it!). Temperature should be controlled as far as possible, and you must use the same plant each time. In explaining any likely effects of wind, you should ... Your results are very strange and I am at a loss to explain them! The 'correct' results for this experiment are known (wind speed increases transpiration), so they are clearly 'wrong', but consistently so! What worries me is that you completely ignore this in the evaluation and write as though ...
