Do plants have intelligence? No one will argue that plants have brains, but some hypotheses suggest plants are intelligent. Surely they don’t have brains, but can plants posses intelligence? It begs the question — do plants communicate meaningfully?

Humans have been conditioned to believe plants don’t have intelligence. However it seems plants protect one another, plants talk to each other, vibrate and make noise, and communicate via their roots.

The definition of intelligence is going to be fiercely debated. But isn’t it time to seek to understand them better? Plant scientists do, and their data is telling.
