Water Movement In Plants

Submitted by rmirley on Wed, 02/07/2018 - 21:59

Humidity has a major impact on the movement of water in plants. Since water movement is passive in plants, its transfer is largely dependent on outside factors. For instance, the humidity of the outside air has a major impact on how quickly water can move through the plant. Humidity in the air makes evaporation more difficult. With higher concentrations of water in the air, the leaf has a harder time transpiring, thus reducing water movement in the plant.
