People in general have always assumed that the temperature of

 

a leaf should be in sync with the temperature of the surrounding air.

 

However, it’s amazing that burning temperatures seldom turn the

 

leaves on the tree into flames. According to a study published in a

5

famous science journal, Nature, this can be accounted for by the fact

 

that as a result of evolution, leaves tend to maintain at a

 

comfortable, climate-conditioned 21 degrees Celsius. For instance,

 

plants from the subtropics, say Kaohsiung, have evolved

 

mechanisms to adjust the temperature of their leaves by angling

10

themselves away from the sun. On the other hand, plants in mountain

 

areas (e.g., Mountain Jade), where the weather is often chilly, have

 

developed ways to “heat” their leaves by putting out more leaves per

 

branch to huddle for warmth. After all, what other option does a plant

 

have in an unpleasant environment? It cannot just migrate to a cooler

15

place.
