What a Plant Knows : A Field Guide to the Senses of Your Garden - And Beyond Paperback

Description

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? And does your favourite fern care whether you play Bach or the Beatles?

Combining cutting-edge research with lively storytelling, biologist Daniel Chamovitz explores how plants experience our shared Earth - through sight, smell, touch, hearing, memory, and even awareness.

Whether you are a green thumb, a science buff, a vegetarian, or simply a nature lover, this rare inside look at the life of plants will surprise and delight.
