Plants talk, too!

As bacteria have been found to be chattering away with each other, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that plants talk, too.  Stefano Mancuso, the founder of plant neurobiology (really!), studies plant signaling and communications.

It turns out that plants signal each other in several ways which help them to find nutrients, procreate and defend against predators.  Ain’t biology wondererful?

Once again, thank you, TED.
