Exciting plant vacuoles: Researchers shed new light on plant communication via electrical signals

Many biological processes in plants are similar to humans: Cells and tissues in grain plants, including maize, also communicate through electrical signals. The shape and frequency of these signals communicate different things. For example, they signal plants to respond to heat and cold, excessive light intensities or insect pests.
