. lenticular transpiration

What is lenticular transpiration? Mention one major difference between lenticular transpiration and stomatal transpiration.


Best Answer

Transpiration occurring through lenticels i.e. minute openings on the surface of old stems is called lenticular transpiration.

Stomatal transpiration is controlled by the plant by altering the size of the stoma, where as this does not happen in case of lenticular transpiration. This is because the lenticels never close, but remain open all the time.

The amount of stomatal transpiration is much more than the amount of lenticular transpiration.
