Effect of Fatty Alcohol on Evaporation and Transpiration1

All treatments required the same amount of transpiration water to produce one gram of oven-dry material. Total water usage per gram of material actually increased with the addition of alcohol because plant growth was decreased proportionately more than transpiration.
