Explanation

Transpiration is the evaporation of water into the atmosphere from the leaves and stems of plants. Plants absorb soil water by their roots. Desert plants have roots that extend 20 meters into the ground to get water. Plants pump the water up from the soil to deliver nutrients to their leaves. The pumping is caused by evaporation of water from ”stomata” (pores), which are found on the undersides of leaves. Transpiration causes 10 % of all evaporating water.
