J C Bose

  • A group of Israeli researchers have been able to pick up distress noises made by plants.
  • The plants made very distinct, high-pitched sounds in the ultrasonic range when faced with some kind of stress. This was the first time that plants had been caught making any kind of noise.
  • This development is seen as a logical extension of the work of Indian scientist Jagadish Chandra Bose, who demonstrated that plants could experience sensations and feel pleasure and pain
