    In more depressing foodie news, researchers from the of University of Missouri-Columbia have discovered that plants can “hear” when they are being eaten. In the study, plants responded to the specific sounds caterpillars make when eating them, with the noises prompting them into putting up additional defenses. That’s your cue to feel bad, vegans.

    No link to the article? Moreso, this doesnt sound like hearing, but reactions similar to the venus flytrap plants that have a specific response/reaction when something touches them. Plants doing this would be similar to a humans immune system trying combat a virus or foreign matter.
