Book Chapter
A chapter from the book "e.explore Plant" is presented. It discusses the process of evaporation of water in plants through their stomata, which is called transpiration. It explains the vital importance of transpiration which is the nutrient and mineral uptake of plants derived from soil. Transpiration occurs when the stomata opens up to release water vapor into the atmosphere which in turn induces more water absorption in the plant as it needs to replace water that was lost.
