Scientists at the Justus Liebig University of Gießen and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jena discovered a new form of electrical signaling in different plant species. This electrical signal — called “system potential” — is induced by wounding of the plant tissue and then passed from leaf to leaf.
