Real buzz in the ear

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Sci­en­tists found that some flow­ers can “hear” in or­der to lis­ten out for in­sects.

The plants make their nec­tar sweeter if they de­tect a bee, en­tic­ing the bugs to visit more of­ten.

This tac­tic gives the flow­ers a bet­ter chance of spread­ing their pollen.

Surely these boffins al­ready know plants can lis­ten though – why do they think corn has ears?
