Vegetation: how to consider evapotranspiration?

Hi everyone!

I’m working on my thesis, studying how outdoor thermal comfort can be influenced by exterior walls characteristics. I’d like to consider different scenarios, including that with new vegetation and green areas in an urban canyon considered. Is it possible to model it, taking into account evapotranspiration of plant and not only impact on shades? I’ve read that this is a limitation of Honeybee and Ladybug, so I’m asking to know if someone has found a solution!

Thanks for all,

Cristina
