Plant 'takes' botanical world's first selfie

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A plant has taken the botanical world's first selfie, according to the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

Trials involving a maidenhair fern called Pete saw it "take" photographs of itself every 20 seconds, using the waste energy it had generated.

Scientists said the ability of shade-loving plants to produce low-levels of energy to supply fuel cells would revolutionise wildlife monitoring.

The technology could help scientists learn more about remote rainforests.

The ultimate aim is to use plants to power camera traps and sensors in the wild.
