Transpiration

Water vapor enters the atmosphere from the evaporation of water. While most of this comes from large bodies of water, some of it comes from biological organisms. Vegetation releases water vapor as a byproduct of photosynthesis. The release of water from plants is known as transpiration. This water vapor will be added to the water content of the surrounding air.
