Plants "sweat" just as people do and are thereby physiologically
and morphologically suited to their specific environment. They
transpire at high temperatures and pass water to the environment.
Transpiration also serves for the transport of water and nutrients.
The underpressure that is caused by transpiration draws water up
from the roots, substances are transported further.
- Compact, easily transportable setup
- For both demonstration and student experiments
- Flexible experimenting thanks to wireless data transmission
- Additional experiment in plant physiology and biochemistry can be performed with few modifications
- Data acquisition with tablets possible
- With detailed experiment guide
- To prepare and analyse diagrams to illustrate the transpiration
of plants, depending on different environmental conditions.
- To discuss the reasons of the differences of the pressure curve
