Water Abundance and Salinity
Water balance in animals
Ability of water molecule to diffuse inside cells via osmosis.
Ability of water molecule to diffuse via osmosis outside cells.
the diffusion of water inside and outside of cells via osmosis are at the same rate.
Water balance in plants
Plants that grow in salt flats of deserts and salt marshes.
Plants that grow in wet environment.
Plants that grow in environment with moderate amount of water .
Plants that grow in dry condition.
Plants with buds located outside and exposed.
Plants with renewal buds above the ground.
Plants with buds near the surface of the ground.
Plants with underground stem.
Annual plants that survive via seeds during dry or winter seasons.
Increase in temperature cause higher rate of water vapor.
The rate of water loss from the surface of an organism depends on the difference of vapor pressure between the surface and the air.
Percentage of absolute humidity if the air is saturated with water vapor at the same temperature and pressure.
Actual mass of water in certain volume of air.
Amount of water vapor increase with temperature.
