Whether plants talk? And not only, as it appeared...confirmed Results of experiences in different laboratories of the world: plants are the difficult organisms which are possessing muscles and nerves, having the memory and musical abilities suffering from colds, “ bad digestion “ and even with boredom.
The experiments made by some biologists are simple technically and easily reproduced in vitro. And the result is yielded same everywhere: plants are capable to see, feel taste, to smell, perceive and hear. Moreover, they can communicate, suffer, remember and analyze.
It turns out that a plant... sees
the Group of scientists of Tyubingensky university managed to find in a tip of corn escape the receptor similar to visual protein to a rodopsin in a retina of a human eye. This receptor is in all plants. It is capable to absorb (“ to see “) light. Thanks to availability of this protein the plant is bent, turns under an optimum angle to sunshine. If to cover an escape tip with a cap, the plant cannot be guided by the sun - “ grows blind “.
Scientists of the Californian university in Los - Andzheles found out that plants by means of special receptors are able to determine duration of light day and depending on it to determine optimum time of blossoming. They react to surplus of the sun in time: dangerous ultra-violet radiation induces them to reproduce sun-protection substances in the body. However, it in a smaller measure concerns houseplants, it is possible because at house mollycoddles immunity is reduced.
the Japanese specialists in the COMPUTER made original experiment. They wrote down the electric fluctuations generated by various plants, entered them into the computer and translated into language of sounds. On the basis of these records the electronic symphony which is executed in one of parks of Okinawa, a peculiar song of green plantings was born. Also not only people listen to it...
Experiments with impact of music on garden cultures were made a set of times, and every time a conclusion there was one: hear and react. Also choose what melody is more to liking. In 1986 among the German school students won a competition of young researchers Rizza Weber which suggested escapes of the curling haricot to listen to various music and it was soon convinced that plants prefer classics, hate a techno - fate, and from “ Brandenburg concert “ Baha come to such delight that they just should be deprived of this pleasure systematically: too high shoot up.
In general such experiments are regularly made with 60 - x years. It is established that at separate cultures productivity can be increased for 60%. For this purpose they should lose quiet, it is more preferable classical music, but no more than three hours a day.
The Japanese - the landowner Dzindzaburo Saydzio, for example, quite professionally uses love to classics of the pupils - champignons sharply to increase a harvest. Though they and not plants, but are so favorable to high art.
And the American psychiatrist John Meyes collected a collection of the blossoming plants in a greenhouse to play them different melodies. Also it was convinced that musical addictions of flowers very differ. Cyclamens love the jazz, mimosas and hyacinths prefer Tchaikovsky, primroses and phloxes - Wagner.
to Carnivorous plants like a Venus flycatcher sense organs that, having felt a touch of an insect, instantly to react are necessary. The role of such body at a flycatcher is carried out by three very sensitive shipik in the center of the sheet. As soon as the insect touches them, the leaf will slam at once. But not up to the end: thin volosik at the edges create a small lattice. If an insect too small and not noteworthily predators, it is given the chance to get out of a trap. But was not chosen, continues to touch shipik - then all. The leaf contracts finally, and digestion process begins.
possess Sense organs also other plants. For example, the mimosas squeezing the petals from the easiest touch. And climbers, “ feeling “ in total around, before will find a suitable support and will be twisted around it?
to One of the participants who are serially passing through the room crammed in the flowers the task to break a flower was given. After repeated serial passing by plants - “ witnesses “ the recorder tape unmistakably specified on “ murderer “.
the Unfortunate philodendron transferred a set of cruel experiments: at it threw into boiled water of live small fishes, shrimps, broke and burned down fellows. And every time the recorder regularly registered emotional peak - the flower empathized the dead.
Tell that in one laboratory studying properties of plants the beauty - the laboratorian looked after them. And soon the staff of laboratory understood that one of examinees - a magnificent ficus - fell in love with the girl. Once she entered the room, the flower endured surge in emotions, on monitors it looked as a dynamic sinusoid brightly - red color. When the laboratorian watered a flower or wiped its leaves from dust, the sinusoid trembled with happiness. Once the girl dared to poflirtovat irresponsibly with the colleague, and the ficus began... to be jealous. Yes with such force that devices read off scale. And the continuous black strip on the monitor specified into what black hole of despair the plant in love plunged.
... carries out instructions
Some manage to use communication between a plant and the owner even purely mechanically, in life. For example, Pierre - Paul Soven, having established a remote radio transmitter, called from work on phone and operated light, temperature and the writing-down equipment in the apartment. Coming back home, he ordered to the philodendron to open a door of garage. The philodendron reacted to the owner`s voice, and the data-acquisition equipment turned on the mechanism of automatic opening of gate.
What you do, the tsar?
of Violation of ecological communications which will constantly organize human communities is led sometimes to the most unexpected tragedies. In national park of Pretoria the mass case of antelopes of Koudou began once. For clarification of the reason of misfortune the zoologist Van Hoven who soon and established it was invited. It appears, were locked by Koudou in quite limited space where the set of acacias, favourite food of these antelopes grew. But the management of park did not know that an acacia which underwent cruel attack herbivorous, right there “ notifies “ all relatives about imminent danger. And all plants in 10 - 15 minutes considerably increase the content of harmful substance of tannin in the leaves. From poisoning with tannin also died Koudou as to leave rather far from the place of feeding of the relative and to find not warned plant they had no opportunity.
After all this who else can doubt correctness ancient, considering that all real on Earth - live? Both herbs, and trees, and insects, and animals - all an essence a uniform big and interdependent organism. When the axe in a tree pierces, it is painful to all. Perhaps, signals of other trees help an affected silver birch to heal one wound. But when there is a lot of wounds, and immunity is weakened also enemies around not to consider? Whether will poison to death forgotten those by whose juice he so got used to support the life about humanity and compassion of the person?
