  • Temperature changes  and       plants
    • Plants have to balance WATER LOSS and  cooling   v               heat buildup and WATER CONSERVATION
    • Plant changes are STRUCTURAL and PHYSIOLOGICAL
  • 1. Evaporative cooling
    • Transpiration
      • STOMATA open
        • Water loss decreases internal temperature
          • Risk of dehydration due to water loss
            • Therefore In excessive heat -stomats will close
