The process of water loss by plants is a simple physical process of heat exchange. This is proven by the coolness of your bare skin when you walk out of the water, and the heat rising from the stove where you boil water. Plants generally differ little in how much water they use. Sawgrass, Cladium jamaicense, the main vegetation of the Everglades, was reported to use 44 inches of water per year, about the same as the 43 inches used by St. Augustinegrass turf. Forests use a little more water than grasslands, hence forests generally occur in moist regions, and grasslands in arid regions. Except for cacti and other succulents, most plants use about the same amount of water. The main difference is that some plants need more irrigation, while other plants, woody plants especially, are better at tapping the underground reserves. With its long roots, bahiagrass can generally be grown in level areas of south Florida with no irrigation.
