Abstract

This is intended merely as a brief preliminary report on experiments now under way to show the influence of air-currents on transpiration. They have arisen from a study of transpiration in general, during which the conviction has grown that one very important factor has been largely neglected. Therefore this has been made the main point of attack while side lines of investigation have been carried on in which it has been attempted to vary one factor at a time, i.e., light, temperature and humidity, and to determine if possible the relative influence of each on transpiration, and their importance as compared with that of air currents. They are not complete, but so far, they indicate that humidity of the air is the most important of the three mentioned.
