Japanese scientists capture plants communicating in real time for the first time

Scientists in Japan have found something amazing! They recorded plants communicating in real time. The plants release airborne compounds to talk to each other, creating a mist around them for communication, as reported by Science Alert.

The video recorded by Japanese scientists shows how plants get and react to signals in the air. This important accomplishment, guided by scientist Masatsugu Toyota from Saitama University, was shared in the journal Nature Communications.

The team also observed how an undamaged plant responded to volatile organic compounds released by plants damaged by insects or otherwise.

"Plants perceive VOCs released by mechanically or herbivore-damaged neighbouring plants and induce various defence responses. Such interplant communication protects plants from environmental threats," the authors said in the study.

According to Science Alert, researchers let caterpillars eat leaves from tomato plants and Arabidopsis thaliana. They then observed how another Arabidopsis plant, untouched by insects, reacted to the signals of danger.
