Transpiration is important in plants because;

  • Evaporation of water from the leaf surface causes cooling of the plant.
  • Facilitates loss of excess water from the plant excretion.
  • Concentrates mineral salts around the roots facilitating their easy uptake by diffusion.
  • Facilitates turgidity of plant cells hence support in herbaceous plants
