Two questions on sound/music and plant electrophysiology

Post by gus » Tue Jun 15, 2010 11:49 am

Hello there,
I am considereing a phd combining with Biology. I have however a couple of questions. Firstly the experiments that showed plants responded differently to music by different people . Is this experiment backed up, duplicated ? Or is it pseudo science ? There are however other well researched studioes that do show plants respond to sound - What is the mechanism that plants use to respond to sound ?


Second issue :

Plant electrophysiology - is this pseudoscience or is there definately minute electrical signals in plants ?

any info/links/advice in this area would be much appreciated,
Cheers,
Gus
