Plant Signaling

Plant signaling is a method used to transmit information within and between plant cells in response to changes in light, dark and temperature. These signals can take many forms, including chemical and electrical, and can occur locally within a single plant or between different plants, including different species of plants. Plant communicating is usually one form of local signaling for eukaryotic cells through direct contact. The plant uses many methods of transmitting information within itself, but the three main ways of connecting the cells are: gap junctions, tight junctions, and desmosomes
