The plants are sensitive and move!

I have just discovered a very interesting interview on the sensory capacities and the same of movement of plants (not by the wind eh ...) by a research director at INRA

"Plants move, smell and react but we are not able to see it"

Interview - You will never look at plants the same way again. They are sensitive, talkative and have a very good "vision", assures the researcher Bruno Moulia. Discoveries that could even change our plates.

Bruno Moulia is research director at INRA (National Institute for Agronomic Research) in the joint research unit "Integrative physics and physiology of the forest or fruit tree". He participated in several studies proving the capacities of perception of plants, in particular one, dating from last December, which made it possible to understand that plants are capable of perceiving their own shape and of adapting their growth and their movements according to .

Hi,

what is funny is that man always brings back to him the behavior of living beings: if it does not move it is because it is stupid while forgetting that the notion of speed of execution of a displacement varies d 'one species to another.

The accelerated study of plants confirms that they understand their environment, seeking light, a support, a host plant.

Some Passiflora have pistils that are mobile enough to be able to observe their movements in real time.

They experience stress (not only water) or suffering (their temperature variation can be an indicator)

As for the intelligence of plants, we should already define what intelligence is in itself without constantly reducing it to ours and to our super-brain.

Having so far observed plants, I acquired the intimate conviction that they have acquired a form of intelligence that we probably do not yet understand but which allowed them to colonize the planet thanks to a Incredibly complex DNA.

Bad news for vegetarians sensitive to the suffering of animals, will no longer be able to take revenge on the salad because quartered then sprinkled with vinegar, this is roughly what Ravaillac suffered after the assassination of Henri IV.

You don't even need a time-lapse movie ... the daisies close every night!

Hello,

if there were only daisies, water lilies, cacti, etc. for the leaves, the albizzias and many others close their foliage every night but hey, it is without doubt one of the least complex mechanisms because always the same compared to the bindweed which seeks a support which is never the same or acacia which emits toxins as soon as it is browsed.

It is true that it is so slow that one still misses today a quantity of "intelligent" behaviors and the possibilities offered by the new means of recording sequentially show sometimes surprising things of the plant environment. .

see you

hello cortejuan

it is not vegetarians who are sensitive to the suffering of animals (to consume dairy products, you must kill calves), but vegans, a form of vegans.
Others, not VG, are sensitive to the suffering of pets but hardly to those of breeding. Humans are full of contradictions!
Furthermore, food is not linked to a particular hypersensitivity, but to compliance with the laws of physiology where the affective only partially intervenes.
But give your children, if you have any, the choice between an apple on an apple tree, a salad in your garden and the rabbit running around in it (you could take an beef elsewhere) and see the result!

it is especially the leaves of the tree that move ... it is important, that is what makes the wind ... the proof: when the leaves of trees do not move there is no wind ...

Hi,

Chatelot16 is full of common sense in its analysis, it is for this reason that wind turbines are so dangerous because they are the ones that create the wind.

But we are moving away from the subject.

Seen on the quiz bac 1914 of Arte: http://1914dernieresnouvelles.arte.tv/1 ... /index.php

What is the phenomenon called that causes certain flowers to close in the evening, in response to the drop in temperature and light?


La nyctinasty. It is a movement of certain plants controlled by the circadian clock and phytochromic receptors, which manifests itself when darkness appears and the temperature drop associated with darkness (thermonasty) .
