You may not think of plants as particularly chatty or active organisms, but they're not as passive as they might seem. Plants can't run away, so they have to develop other strategies to stay alive, as James Cahill, an environmental plant ecologist at the University of Alberta, explains in "What Plants Talk About," a documentary from the PBS show NATURE. They've evolved the use of chemicals to communicate with insects and each other in order to thrive. Here are five behaviors that show how active plants can be.

If youíre low on funds for that big vacation, you could always ask to borrow money, make a Kickstarter campaign... or swindle a couple of Islamic State recruiters. It may not be the safest way to make money, but thatís what three girls from Chechnya, a Russian republic in southeastern Europe, did.

Casa Brutale is a geometrical translation of the landscape. It is an unclad statement on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture. It is a chameleonic living space, created to serve its owner and respect the environment. It is the inverted reference to Casa Malaparte, encased and protected by the tender earth that has hosted the human civilization for millennia. It is a complete study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering, which thoroughly detailed, awaits solely its realisation.
Translation: it's some bitchin' digs under a pool in the corner of a cliff.

They've been posting photos of the bear in various parts of the museum-to their Twitter account using the hashtag #LostBear to try to get the attention of the family.
These include images of him in the jaws of a dinosaur, looking for honey in old pots and climbing around a bird's nest.
