What a plant knows by daniel chamovitz

$35.00 $29.00

In What a Plant Knows, the renowned biologist Daniel Chamovitz presents an intriguing and scrupulous look at how plants themselves experience the world―from the colours they see to the schedules they keep. Highlighting the latest research in genetics and more, he takes us into the inner lives of plants and draws parallels with the human senses to reveal that we have much more in common with plants than we may realise. Chamovitz shows how plants know up from down, how they know when a neighbour has been infested by a group of hungry beetles, and whether they appreciate music. Covering touch, sound, smell, sight, and even memory, Chamovitz encourages us to consider whether plants might even be aware.
