Overlooked Water Loss in Plants Could Throw Off Climate Models

Two interesting takeaways from this article:

  1. Even when stomata are closed, water is still lost, especially through the waxy cuticle. Don’t stress your plants with too much dryness!
  2. Climate change models assume a certain amount of water vapor, as water vapor is its own greenhouse gas. This could place current models of water vapor as low, suggesting that climate change may end up being worse than predicted.
