What a plant knows

What a Plant Knows by Daniel Chamovitz

I just finished reading a very interesting book called What a Plant Knows by Daniel Chamovitz. The author, a genetics Ph.D. and the Dean of George S.Wise Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Tel Aviv, sheds fascinating insight into the various senses and the memory of plants. Chamovitz does not try to make plants look like humans but focuses on known facts and research on the subject. Still, he manages to mesmerise the reader by describing the research processes and the amazing results. After reading the book I am once again more in awe of the ingenious nature we live in.
