Transpiration is the release (evaporation) of water from a plant,usually through the bottom of their leaves. This is for the same purpose as perspiration in some animals: tor fresh from the plant. Italso keeps the stomata (pores) open for carbon dioxide to enter.The flow of water from the roots to the leaves takes minerals to theplant tissue. Plants absorb water through their roots and then give watervapour through the pores in their leaves. Child bite-sized explanation of the Transpiration is more similar to sweating in human beings. Transpirationcools plants from the roots, towards the outside through the leaves.But rather than see it, as humans get of sweat on his skin,of the floor of the perspiration (sweat) is more of a steam.
