Plants can cool off the air by sweating
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Science News describes how plants and trees cool the air from “sweating.”
During transpiration, water and nutrients are pulled up from the roots of a plant and then carried to the stem and leaves.
Some of this water escapes through pores in the plant’s leaves, which results in sweating.
Heat is removed from the air as the sweat evaporates, which creates a cooling effect.
