Transpiration experiment

08:00 Monday morning 9 May 2016 we covered a branch of a tree still covered in leaves with a zip lock bag and tied it off with an elastic band.

After 2 hours water vapour was clearly visible on the sides of the plastic bag.

We decided to leave the bag on for 24 hours to determine the volume of water that had been released.
