What a Plant Knows (Paperback)

Daniel Chamovitz

-  

How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? Can an orchid get jet lag? Does a tomato plant feel pain when you pluck a fruit from its vines? How do roses know when spring has sprung? And does your favourite fern care whether you play Led Zeppelin or Bach? Combining cutting-edge research with lively storytelling, renowned biologist Daniel Chamovitz presents a beguiling exploration of how plants experience our shared Earth - in terms of sight, smell, touch, hearing, memory, and even awareness. For green thumbs, science buffs, vegetarians, and nature lovers, this rare inside look at the life of plants is a delight.
