How does the environment affect the stomatal density
Please find below the answer:
Stomatal density is defined as the no. of stomata per unit area. It is affected by environmental variations in the amount of sunlight and water availability.
- In dry atmospheric conditions, stomatal density is low. This helps in little loss of water through transpiration.
- In moist atmospheric conditions, Stomatal density is high. This promotes the process of transpiration.
Hope this clears your doubt.
