In botany, the term for the evaporation of water via the leaves of plants, especially via their adjustable stomata (stomata, hence "stomatal transpiration"), but also via their remaining outer skin (cuticle, hence "cuticular transpiration"). The amount of water transpired over a period of time is the transpiration rate. The evaporation of water on unvegetated or open land or water surfaces, on the other hand, is called evaporation. The sum of evaporation and transpiration is called evapotranspiration. See also humidity.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
