STRESS DETECTION IN PLANTS
– 2016

The experiments carried out in these case studies show the reactions of plants to a stressful environment. Each plant was exposed to different circumstances: fire, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, boiling water, dehydration and root absorption of vinegar. Plants always emit fluorescence, but when a plant is under stressful conditions the fluorescent emittance increases. This fluorescence is invisible to the human eye. The images show the reactions of the plants 30 seconds after being exposed to the stress-inducers. If we could see beyond our limited visible spectrum, plants would appear to us as glowing organisms, directly responsive to their environment.
