Abstract

Transpiration factor was expressed in the ratio o f transpiration to leaf area (Tr/LA) in combination with the ratio of evapotranspiration to evaporation (Et/E). Waterhyacinth was used to test evapotranspiration of glucose and acetic acid. The result of Tr/LA was less than 1and Et/E was more than 1 for both solutions containing high organic matter of more than 1000 mg/L. The two measures would be valuable in phytotreatment of wastewater containing high organic matter concentration.
