Plants emit airborne sounds when stressed
A team of biologists at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, has discovered that stressed plants emit sounds — similarly to many animals — using ultrasonic clicks not detectable by human ears, and found that these sounds carry information about the physiological state of the plant.
Understanding plant sounds
Developed machine learning models are capable of distinguishing between plant sounds and general noises, and identifying the condition of the plants — dry, cut, or intact — based solely on the emitted sounds.
