Answer to Question #73011 in Other Biology for Bushra Nasim
Why does witling of leaves takes place in hot summer days? Reason
During hot summer days, water loss by means of transpiration increases, while the supply of water for the roots does not change. As a result, leaf cells lose water faster than they gain it from xylem vessels. If such negative water balance is maintained for long, the plant wilts.
