Do underwater plants transpire?

Expert Answer:

Yes transpiration happens in all plants with a vascular system, including aquatic plants. Transpiration is the movement of water through a plant. Water transpires through stomata which allows carbondioxide to come in. So if the plant didn't have stomata then they couldn't uptake carbondioxide, which is essential to photosynthesis.
