Mystery behind Carnivorous Plants Unveiled
A recent study has found as to how the carnivorous plant located in the Eastern Australia attracts its pry. During the study, it was found that the carnivorous plat uses snapping tentacles to catch the pry. This strategy of the carnivorous plant is so effective that the pry finds it impossible to escape from the grips of the plant.
During the study, it came to light that plants can bring changes to themselves for survival purpose. D. glanduligera is the name of the plant that was studied by researchers. The plant is capable of living more than a year. Behavioral changes are quite common among the wild animals but in the plants they are seldom seen.
It has come to light that the snapping tentacles are covered with glue. The sticky substance on the tentacles makes it impossible for the pry to run away. Besides, when an insect walks over the plant triggers the touch-sensitive catapult action that propels the plant to hurl an attack over the insect.
The lead author of the study, Thomas Speck, said, “Such plants are of particular interest to plant biologists because of their sophisticated and complex structural and mechanical adaptations to carnivory”.
