Scientists Say Plants Use Sound To Find Water And Ultimately Survive

Scientists are studying and confirming how plants may actually have the ability to sense sounds, like flowing water in a pipe ? or even buzzing insects. What? Plants hear sounds? That’s an earful. But not to researchers at the University of Western Australia, whose experiments point to the possibility that some plants may actually detect sound waves. Evolutionary biologist Monica Gagliano and her colleagues worked with pea seedlings, which they inserted into pots that looked like an upside-down “Y.
