Did You Know? - Eavesdropping Plants
Interesting research at the University of Missouri demonstrated plants have the ability to "hear." It seems that their "hearing" affects a plant's ability to ward off pests. Researchers played noises of caterpillars munching on foliage to one group of plants while keeping a control group in silence.

Plants exposed to different vibrational sounds, opposed to silence, acted like the control group and didn't produce the repellents. Continue to the entire newsletter.
