Transpiration Research

Transpiration Research

Transpiration is the phenomenon whereby water, in a gaseous state, passes through the surface of plant organs (mainly leaves) and is dissipated from the body to the outside. It not only promotes the absorption and transportation of water, minerals, and organic matter in the plant body but also can be able to reduce the temperature of the leaves. Advanced biophysical techniques can elucidate the mechanism of plant transpiration and further reveal its role in plant growth—water balance and under stress conditions.

CD BioSciences has a comprehensive biophysical platform with specialized technology to observe the stomata on plant leaves to reveal the mechanism of plant transpiration, further laying the foundation for plant growth and development research.


Drought Stress

Drought stress causes changes in stomatal conductance, and any change in stomatal behavior, such as closure or opening (stomatal conductance), is reflected in changes in plant temperature. Specialized imaging techniques are used to observe water distribution and structural changes in plant cells under drought stress to understand the effects of this condition on plant transpiration.

Temperature Detection

Plant transpiration is a physiological process in which plants release water vapor into the atmosphere through stomata when the water supply is sufficient. Infrared thermography is a non-destructive testing technique that allows rapid, non-invasive acquisition of surface temperature information of a target object. Through the use of infrared thermal imaging instruments, surface temperature changes of plants can be detected in real-time, and information such as the intensity of transpiration and water use efficiency of plants can be inferred, which in turn can help to formulate plant water-saving measures and realize precise watering.

Stomatal Observation

The opening of stomata on the surface of leaves regulates the exchange of gases between plants and the atmosphere, allowing plants to balance photosynthesis and transpiration. Stomatal conductance reflects the degree of stomatal opening of plant leaves within a certain period and is a key indicator for evaluating the efficiency of plant transpiration and water utilization. Using techniques such as confocal laser microscopy and fluorescence imaging, the opening and closing status of plant leaf stomata during transpiration can be observed in real-time. In addition, biophysical techniques allow for the visualization of stomatal dynamics under environmental conditions and how such changes affect transpiration.
