High-speed imaging snaps Venus flytrap

April 2005
Vision Systems Design;Apr2005, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p9
Presents a study which investigated the tendency of the leaves of a Venus flytrap to close on its prey by combining a simple, theoretical model with high-speed video imaging using a complimentary metal oxide semiconductor camera from Vision Research. Application of ImageJ software in the study; Role of the plant in controlling the closure mechanism.
