Importance of transpiration in plants:

Transpiration is an important biochemical process, through it has some harmful rules; it is mainly an essential method. It creates a negative pressure gradient that helps draw water and minerals up through the plant from its roots.

Importances of transpiration are discussed below:

  • Transpiration helps to absorption of water and its conduction different parts of plants.
  • Helps in receiving water and inorganic salts. So, transpiration indirectly helps in receiving mineral salts
  • The excess water absorbed by the root is given off from the plant body and thus a balance of water in the plant body is made.
  • A suction force is created due to transpiration. In case of tall plants, suction force helps in upward rising of water.
  • Transpiration plays a key role for the production of foods and different chemicals by malting a continuous supply of water to leaves.
  • Due to transpiration certain hydrophilic salts may be stored on the leaf surface which keep the leaf moist and sometimes reset the fungal infection.
  • Optimum transpiration helps in physical growth of plants.
  • For cell division turgidity of cell are required. Transposition indirectly keeps the cells turgid and helps in the cell division.

Harmfulness of Transposition

For decades, transposable elements have been known to produce a wide variety of changes in plant gene expression and function.

  • Excess transpiration may cause the death of plants; if the soil has water demand.
  • Plants lose plenty of energy during transposition.
  • Transpiration compels the plants to absorb plenty of unnecessary water.
