According to my point of view transpiration and evapotranspiration are different things, but i am confused about this topic. After great effort, I found a major difference between it.

Transpiration: The loss of water in the form of vapour from plants surface is called transpiration.

Evapotranspiration: The loss of water from any surface in the form of vapour is called evapotranspiration. Such as water surface, soil and any body surface. By educationspot

Is it correct? Please explain.

Essentially, evapotranspiration is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land and ocean surface to the atmosphere.
