4. How do plants loose water from their leaves?

  • The sun heats the leaves of the plant allowing water to be evaporated every time the plant inhales carbon dioxide.
  • The stomata in the leaves allow water loss through evaporation every time they open for respiration.
  • The chlorophyll allows evaporation to take place during photosynthesis.

5. In which parts can a plant store its water?
