Year 12 Biologists investigate Transpiration rates in plants

Our Year 12 Biologists have been investigating Transpiration rates in plants by setting up their own Potometers.

They carefully used the equipment to create a sealed system and looked at how various factors, like wind speed, temperature and light intensity effects the rate of water loss from the plant. It is a very tricky practical to set up and they all showed great practical skill in doing so.
