The advantages that AE brings in monitoring have enabled its use for following the fracture of biological tissues. Apart from the dedicated tests during mechanical loading of bones and ligaments in vitro, there is large potential for diagnostic studies in patients due to the non-invasive nature of the technique. At the same time, monitoring of very sensitive mobility activities related to moisture and cavitation in plants open new avenues in the field of efficient farming. This chapter intends to summarize the use of AE in biological materials, which despite the inherent complications due to heterogeneity, curvature and very demanding application in general, is very promising and with high social impact.
