Question 29 of 30    0.0/ 3.3333 Points
Assuming all environmental factors remain constant except for the wind, predict what would happen to the rate of transpiration of a plant exposed to high wind conditions for an extended period of time. Explain your answer.
For an extended period of time the transpiration rate of a plant to wind conditions
Model Short Answer: The rate of transpiration will increase. This is because wind creates additional suction on a leaf surface, which adds to the suction already produced in the stomata during gas exchange processes, ultimately increasing the rate of transpiration.
Question 30 of 30    3.33/ 3.3333 Points
Based on the results from the lab, compare and contrast the effects of heat and light on the transpiration rate of plants.
Model Short Answer: Heat increased the transpiration rates for all plants and light for most. Overall, transpiration was increased more with the heater than with the lamp.
