The Senses of Plants

ID : 1255   
« back to classes page
We know plants move their leaves toward light, bananas can ripen apples, and beans will climb up garden supports. How do plants see
light? Why do bananas affect apples? What makes vines curl around a post? Recent research has begun to elucidate how plants
can apparently sense and respond to their environments. How closely do the actions of plants match ours in sensing sources of water,
light, and food? Are plants intelligent? Can they remember?
