Class 11 Biology Transport In Plants Transpiration and photosynthesis

Transpiration and photosynthesis

  • Transpiration
  • creates transpiration pull for absorption and transport of plants
  • supplies water for photosynthesis
  • transports minerals from the soil to all parts of the plant
  • cools leaf surfaces
  • maintains the shape and structure of the plants by keeping cells turgid.
  • Photosynthesis is limited by available water, which can be swiftly depleted by transpiration.
  • The evolution of the C4 photosynthetic system maximises the availability of CO2 while minimising water loss.
