What's the meaning of desert cooler? Please explain.
If plants do not have any mechanism to maintain internal temperature, how do they survive in adverse conditions, i.e, in extreme hot or extreme cold environnement? Please explain.
Generally, plants grow faster with increasing air temperatures up to a point. Extreme heat will slow growth and also increase moisture loss. ... As tem- peratures approach freezing, growth stops and the plant (if perennial) becomes dormant. Plants are better able to withstand cold temperatures when dormant.
@sunitasaxena What's the meaning of desert cooler (underlined in red)? Please explain.
How can plants become dormant in cold environment? Don't only seeds have the ability to become dormant? Please explain.
plants keep a house cooler in warm weather by consuming hot air for their natural processes.
They will help keep room cool and cooling costs down by adding humidity to the room.
Plants release moisture into the air through the process of transpiration, which is when moisture evaporates from the leaves.
When plants release moisture into the air in a warm room, it can reduce the temperature by as much as 10 degree
