The analysis, once completed, would be the first of its kind--a large-scale transpiration measure that can be applied to other urban areas as well.
Bread grass plants grown under full sunlight have a higher transpiration rate (E) than those grown in the shade (Table 2), given the higher Gs reported in treatments under full sunlight.
Assuming the equivalence between the sap flux and transpiration flux of leaf surfaces, the sap flux measurement is used to estimate the transpiration of woody species, allowing to monitor their water functioning for a long period, under undisturbed natural conditions (Vellame et al.
