In this hands-on lab students will design and conduct experiments as they study how transpiration works, how it can be disrupted, and the implications for plant health when it is. Special attention will be paid to experimental design and the importance of controls, dependent and independent variables, and testable hypotheses. This program is 1 1/2 hours.
