    Towards understanding plant bioacoustics


    Gagliano, M, Mancuso, S & Robert, D, 2012, ‘Towards understanding plant bioacoustics’. Trends in Plant Science, vol 17., pp. 323-325


    Little is known about plant bioacoustics. Here, we present a rationale as to why the perception of sound and vibrations is likely to have also evolved in plants. We then explain how current evidence contributes to the view that plants may indeed benefit from mechanosensory mechanisms thus far unsuspected.
