Detection Landscapes

“plants growing over old sites of human habitation have a different chemistry from their neighbors, and these differences can reveal the location of buried ruins.”

One thought on “Detection Landscapes

  1. This is really interesting. I think the blogger lets their imagination run away with them abit though. Genetically modifying plants to show plans of lost ruins? Perhaps it’s just enough that plants already indicate ruins without moidfying them so they do it in a more visual way. Maybe it’s more up to us to find and learn these natural signs? Rather than modifying nature to make it more simple for ourselves to understand the world.
