What came first, was it the plant or the bee?
Now briefly looking at the information, is it the intelligence of the bees or the plant.
In the forest, without ears, do we hear the tree fall.
Similarly, with the shape of the petals and their evolution would the bees, even if they buzz and flap their wings like demented little stripy flying sharks, be able to influence the amount of sweetness of the nectar.
Phyto acoustics, such a new field of research that the word is not recognised by Thesaurus. It is based on the theory, unproven to date, that not only walls have ears, but also plants. Not ears per se, but perhaps a chemical reaction to noise. Most people believe that talking to plants increases their ability to grow.
Afterall, sound is just different waves of pressure which can be detected audibly, so does it matter whether it is the beat of a wing or the encouraging tone of a voice.
My vote is for the plant, not only for their ability to attract the maniacal bee, but because of their beauty, their fragrance and the fact they don’t sting you when you tread on them.

Bees and their ability to influence plants is the reason this book was written.
Looking at the connection between a bee’s ability to change its wing speed, which could encourage plants to increase its output of nectar, whilst also studying the plants ability to alter their desirability to their stripy winged enthusiasts.
Using information published by National Geographic and studies made by Tel Aviv University, the question is considered. Who is the cleverest, the bee or the plant?
Is the plants desire to be pollinated stronger and more compelling than the bees desire to collect nectar?
The reader can find the answer to an ancient question using today’s modern science hopefully giving an insight to the complicated and fascinating world of the birds, the bees and the flowers.
Phyto acoustics Phyto-acoustics! This is cool…. Bees and flowers have more going on than we thought, it’s all so lovely. ‘I know where the beez have gone’ – they are hanging with the Evening Primrose… #beez #flowers #flowersarelistening
Something to research here ? We have only scratched the surface of the importance of bee culture to our lives. Go for it Sandy
