RE: The elegant nature of science
Plants 'talk' to plants to help them grow.

"Having a neighborly chat improves seed germination, finds research in BioMed Central's open access journal BMC Ecology. Even when other known means of communication, such as contact, chemical and light-mediated signals, are blocked chilli seeds grow better when grown with basil plants. "Our results show that plants are able to positively influence growth of seeds by some as yet unknown mechanism. Bad neighbors, such as fennel, prevent chilli seed germination in the same way. We believe that the answer may involve acoustic signals generated using nanomechanical oscillations from inside the cell which allow rapid communication between nearby plants"

I just love the idea of chilli peppers talking, chatting the basil up, maybe discussing recipes. Plus, wouldn't it be cool if they could warn us, maybe say something like: "I'm too hot, don't eat me!" (not a peep out of you lot Dodgy )

Some sharks do the same thing, I'm not aware of any other species that do this.

And! http://phys.org/news/2013-05-exotic-atom...tml#ajTabs Pear shaped nuclei. Another thing I go on about is how geometry enables abiogenesis; now perhaps cosmology.

Edit: your vid has a different idea of fisher cat than I do. Tongue

These are the ones we got around here:

The like is for the article. And the animal. Not for the obnoxious broad.

Now, the fisher is adorable, I'll give you that (and what's the "worst sound" is that other borad making stupid comments. C.S. Lewis may have been a religious nut, but he was right about one thing: "No herd of other beasts, gathered together, has so ugly a voice as Man." Or woman Dodgy )

Also, mine is a fishing cat and your's just a fisher Tongue

And: sand cats Heart

Oh sweet mother of god - yes! They are also endangered, though Sadcryface

I don't think there's another creature in existence that is so angry-looking and cute at the same time!
