Plant senses and perception

ID:210223

Type: Proposal

Overview: Plants perceive the world without eyes, ears or brains. For this reason, their perception mechanisms have been too often overlooked. Being alive, they exhibit behaviour, mostly unknown and secrete to humans. Plants fight for territory, seek out food, evade predators and trap prey. They have a chemical language for communicating with other plants of the same or other species, and with fungi and animals too. Plants move slowly but with purpose, which means they are aware of what is going on around them. They are attracted by certain chemicals and sounds, while avoid others. Also, analogues for mechanoreceptors, photoreceptors and neurotransmitters have been found in plants. Understanding how can teach us a lot about them, and potentially a lot about us as well.
