Plant Sensing and Communication

Animal behaviorists differentiate between cues, which cause a response in a receiver, and signals, which are cues that increase the expected fitness of the sender. Plant responses tend to have multiple elicitors and these cues often have redundant effects. Plants also emit cues and signals which are then available to other organisms that exploit plants. For example, animals respond primarily to visual and chemical cues to locate and use plant tissues.

Keywords:   cues, eavesdropping, signals
