Summary
Draws on up-close-and-personal encounters with the plants themselves, as well as plant shamans, indigenous elders, and mystics from around the world and integrates these experiences with an incredible research journey and the groundbreaking scientific discoveries that emerged from it. Gagliano has published numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers on how plants have a Pavlov-like response to stimuli and can learn, remember, and communicate to neighboring plants. She has pioneered the brand-new research field of plant bioacoustics, for the first time experimentally demonstrating that plants emit their own 'voices' and, moreover, detect and respond to the sounds of their environments. By demonstrating experimentally that learning is not the exclusive province of animals, Gagliano has re-ignited the discourse on plant subjectivity and ethical and legal standing
Summary
An accessible and compelling story of a scientist's discovery of plant communication and how it influenced her research and changed her life: Gagliano reveals the dynamic role plants play in first-hand accounts from her research into plant communication and cognition. Transcending the view that plants are the objects of scientific materialism, Gagliano encourages us to rethink plants as beings with subjectivity, consciousness, and volition, having the capacity for their own perspectives and voices
