A light hearted project based on the idea of plant communication
Two studies published in 1983 demonstrated that willow trees, poplars and sugar maples can warn each other about insect attacks. Since then, numerous studies and research have confirmed the science of plant communication. From releasing volatile organic compounds into the air when insects attack to using roots to communicate with each other, plant communication has been debunked but still the awareness about this isn’t strong.
Internet of Plants (IOP) is a light hearted project based on the idea of plant communication with the aim to educate and spread awareness about the subject.
