[quote:Anonymous Coward 21648329:MV80MjA1NDU5Xzc2NDg0OTc4XzU2NTk0OUI3] Fruits and veggies have seeds inside intended to be eaten and expelled through waste automatically fertilized. [/quote]
In times of intense stress, people sometimes let out their angst with a squeal ⁠— and a new study suggests that plants might do the same.
Unlike human screams, however, plant sounds are too high-frequency for us to hear them, according to the research, which was posted Dec. 2 on the bioRxiv database. But when researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel placed microphones near stressed tomato and tobacco plants, the instruments picked up the crops' ultrasonic squeals from about 4 inches (10 centimeters) away. The noises fell within a range of 20 to 100 kilohertz, a volume that could feasibly "be detected by some organisms from up to several meters away," the authors noted.
