Lasand o picatura de apa sa cada pe Mimoza Pudica, aceasta invata repede ca picatura e inofensiva si nu isi mai strange frunzele! Apoi isi reaminteste aceasta si dupa doua saptamani!

Scientists discover plants that can learn and remember

New research from a team of scientists at the University of Western Australia will change the way you think about the difference between plants and animals. Mimosa pundica plants, they found, can learn and remember, despite not having a brain. Those active little fern-like things always did seem sort of smart, though, didn’t they?

Scientists discover plants that can learn and remember

With a name that literally means „shy,” theMimosa pundica is a particularly unique piece of flora, as it responds to touch by folding inward to protect itself from predators. Wondering if this was just a straightforward reflex, the Australian researchers rigged up an apparatus that would drop water on the plant in both high- and low-light environments. Much to their surprise, they found that the plant stopped opening and closing once it learned that the drops weren’t harmful. More impressively, the plants remembered that lesson several weeks after the initial training.

The scientists are unclear on the exact biology of what makes Mimosa pundica plants learn and remember, but they suspect it has something to do with the plants’ calcium-based signally network in their cells. This sophisticated system works not unlike animals’ memory processes, giving the researchers cause to reconsider the difference between plants and animals. It just makes you wonder: Just how smart can plants get? Maybe Lord of the Rings isn’t such a fantasy after all.

    bai! nu ma deprima! ce este acela creer?imi plac articolele selectate de tine si nu vreau sa cred ca ai scola cat acceleratul de constanta. sau ma insel? articolul este interesant , mai interesant in schimb este transmisia informatiei accumulate in timpul vietii prin intermediul genomului. de fapt asta este baza evolutiei dar are si alte conotatii
