Differentiate between guttation and transpiration.

Difference between guitation and transpiration is as follows



 Guttation  is the loss of liquid droplets  from the plants.


Guttated water is a dilute solution of  both inorganic and organic substances.


Guttation occurs at the margins and  the tips of the leaves.

Excessive guttation does not cause loss  of turgidity.

It is the loss of water by a plant in the form of vapours.


Transpired water is a pure water.


Transpiration occurs through the  general surface of the leaves and the young stem.

Excessive transpiration results in wilting  in severe cases, could be lethal to plant.
