Rapid movements in plants
TLDR
The current understanding of rapid plant movements is reviewed with the aim of encouraging further biological studies into this fascinating, challenging topic. Expand
Wound- and mechano-stimulated electrical signals control hormone responses.
TLDR
The model suggests that the depolarisation of membranes within the vascular matrix triggered by physical stimuli and/or chemical elicitors is linked to changes in phloem turgour and that this plays vital roles in electrical signal generation. Expand
Insect-damaged Arabidopsis moves like wounded Mimosa pudica
TLDR
It is found that the petioles of undamaged leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana undergo minute deformations when insects fed on other leaves, genetically linking electrical signals to organ movement and deformation and suggesting an evolutionary origin of the large leaf movements seen in wounded Mimosa. Expand
Learning from an Intelligent Mechanosensing System of Plants
Kinematic amplification strategies in plants and engineering
TLDR
This literature review identifies the main strategies used by plants to create and amplify movements and anatomize the most recent mechanical understanding of compliant engineering mechanics, and demonstrates that plant movements, rooted in compliance and multi-functionality, can effectively inspire better kinematic/adaptive structures and materials. Expand
Motions of leaves and stems, from growth to potential use.
TLDR
The history of observations and studies is put in the perspective of the ideas surrounding them, leading to a presentation of the current classification of these motions, and it is pointed out that the mature reversible movements are just partial regressions of the developmental ones. Expand
Research on Interactive Prototype Design and Experience Method Based on Open Source
TLDR
The results show that the open source code can be obtained in a variety of formats, and can be freely and easily modified to solve the design problems encountered by individuals or teams, to support the design goals. Expand
Touch-induced action potentials in Arabidopsis thaliana DEGLI AGOSTI
Arabidopsis thaliana (col accession) leaves were touched with a brush (30 mm2) in the middle of the leaf (equiv. weight ~1-2 g, for ~ 2 s). This soft stress generated reversible depolarizations thatExpand
