Life imitates Science Fiction again

posted by James Heflin

Something to think about next time you weed the garden:

Plants use underground fungal networks to warn their neighbours of aphid attack, UK scientists have discovered. The study, published this week in Ecology Letters, is the first to reveal plants' ability to communicate underground in this way.

Makes things like Stanislaw Lem's sentient ocean seem more like science, less like fiction.
