• To investigate the relationship among leaf surface area, number of stomata, and the rate of transpiration
• To design and conduct an experiment to explore other factors, including different environmental variables, on the rate of transpiration
• To investigate the relationship between the structure of vascular tissues (xylem and phloem) and their functions in transporting water and nutrients in plants
