Plants Give Distress Calls, Israeli Researchers Find in New Study

In a very interesting and unusual kind of scientific study, Israeli scientists reportedly found that plants emit distress signals.

The study was reported on by The Epoch Times telling that the research team at Tel Aviv University recorded distress sound in the frequency range of 20 to 100 KHZ emitted by tomato and tobacco plants when they were in distress due to insufficient water or when their stems were cut.

The story adds that this frequency range is not audible to humans but could be to some other animals. The implication seems to be that some animals whose habitat is mainly in or around plants can catch these ecological alarms and act accordingly.

This research takes the call for care and responsible living to a whole new level. Are we ready to respect the right of plants and abstain from wasteful practices? That’s the big question this study put before us all.
