Plants: they work!


Here’s a good blog called Howplantswork that focuses on, well, how plants work. It’s only updated once a month or so, but going through old posts is fascinating. Some highlights:

  • Plant versus plant: some plants kill other plants using natural herbicides
  • Nervous plants? (part 2) [ie, do plants have a nervous system?
  • Flowers: what you see versus what the bees see ]
  • Plant “RAM”? – some plants could record environmental experiences for future reference by altering their DNA
  • The World-Wide-Web: Are plants inter-connected by a subterranean fungal network?
