All plants transpire. The rate of transpiration depends on a plant's physical properties and its environmental conditions. As transpiration occurs mainly on the leaf, a general rule is that plants with larger leaves will transpire more than plants with smaller leaves. In this experiment, you will examine the environmental factors that affect a plant's transpiration rate. Using the same type and size plants, you will vary the amount of heat and wind each plant receives. You will place one plant in a warm environment, a second plant in a windy environment, and a third plant in a cool, calm environment. Before you begin, make an educated guess about the outcome of this experiment based on your...
