From Peter Bell: “It didn’t take a survey to know that it was nonsense to assume that ‘UDI’ would alienate large numbers of voters. All it took was some understanding of human nature. To anybody with a modicum of such understanding, bold, assertive action is obviously just the thing to catch the public’s imagination – and the mood of the nation.” peterabell.scot/2020/02/09/a-u

We all think of plants as silent, but they're not. 🌱

Plant bioacoustics is the study of how plants generate and respond to sound. Turns out, plants aren't silent at all. It's just that the sounds they make are outside our hearing range, mostly being ultrasound.

Plants which are distressed by lack of water even squeal at around 20-100 kHz. We can't hear that, but some animals can. Moths will even avoid these distressed plants and lay their eggs on healthier leaves.
