1.Was your initial hypothesis about the effect of your environmental variable on the rate of transpiration supported by the data you collected? Why or why not?2.What were some challenges you had in performing your experiment? Did you make any incorrect assumptions about the effect of environmental variables on the rate(s) of transpiration?3.Were you able to perform without difficulty the mathematical routines required to analyze your data? Which calculations, if any, were challenging or required help from your classmates or teacher?■■Where■Can■You■Go■from■Here?■1.Investigate how guard cells control the opening and closing of stomata, including the role of abscisic acid and K+.2.Design an experiment to investigate transpiration in two different types of plants — one that is drought tolerant and one that requires a significant amount of water. What predictions can you make about the rate of transpiration in each?3.If you had to revise the design of your experiment, what suggestions would you make? Why would you make them?4.If your investigations generated other questions that you might want to research, ask your teacher if you can conduct other experiments.
