Plants May Communicate by Sound

Researchers believe plants may also have ears, although very different from ours, and that sound is a much simpler communication method than releasing chemicals into the air.

“Eardrums and cochlear structures are just one possible, admittedly sophisticated, solution, but by no means constitute an essential requirement for hearing,”

I also believe some (a few) plants have sentient abilities

and some plants can colonise space by seed dispersion from natural events, seeds are small so gravity dosnt affect them greatly, they can last a long time especially in a vacuum.

Well, people claim that music makes a difference in plant growth, so I guess they'd have to hear, somehow, for that to work.

Of course, this begs the question- if plants can communicate, besides ears they must have some sort of intelligence. If that's true, maybe we should think twice before we mow the lawn the weekend...

We did this one a few weeks ago...
Plants May ‘Talk’ To Each Other by Clicking Their Roots

The truth is though, that the researchers produced results which indicate some kind of communication between plants, but that the idea plants do it by SOUND is pure speculation, and they dont have a single bit of evidence for it.

And also, what I said yesterday...
Use earlier sources. If your newslink says "XYZ are reporting that ..." , then take the time to go to XYZ and check the story from them. Few bother.

Thru the years of tending gardens and plants I will
say I believe that plants and flowers are sensitive
and know when they are being loved and cared
for. Not sure if they can hear ( even tho it seems
maybe they can) but they can definitely feel.

Yea, I do believe they communicate in some fashion.
I like to think I have a happy garden.

I plant flowers that encourage bees and birds to visit....for food, water and shelter from enemies.
I am almost completely chemical free....and for the most part, the flowers show their appreciation by putting on a great show.

I'm sure plants can communicate. They have many ways. Chemicals and frequencies. Many people are just not smart enough or aware enough to understand this.

You linked to PLoS ONE article by Gagliano. Did you catch that?

Your hyperlink text is title of 1 study, but your link is to another from PLoS ONE("Out of Sight but Not out of Mind: Alternative Means of Communication in Plants").

The study you attempted to link is reference no 45 in PLoS ONE.

Elevenaugust's news cited Trends in Plant Science.

The Gagliano evidence for sound communication is in the short study, 3 page Spotlight.

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.

technically sounds exist always everywhere in the material world as long as their is an oscillating pressure which is just change in force and direction and area so technically everything ever done is sound SOOOO therefore plants interacting with each other is sound. BANG lol but is sound a real form of communication between plants? in some little and infinitely big ways i guess.. ill just leave it at that cuz i cant think of anything else at the moment... OSCILLATING FREQUENCIES

Sound is just a frequency of energy. Our perception of sound seems narrow compared to the rest of the animal kingdom. The trees should have a very high band of perception of frequencies compared to humans so their communication could be well out of our hearable range.

my guess is they sense vibrations in the atmosphere around them.
