I have always felt that plants were as smart as animals..and probably rocks, too, though that was a bit more difficult. I have just started delving into a new book that talks about plants.
Reading Pam Montgomery’s Plant Spirit Healing. There was a Plant Neurobiology symposium held in 2005 in Florence!! How great. Result – a journal – Plant Signaling and Behavior whose mission statement includes “plants are as sophisticated in behavior as animals”…different time scales. Jeremy Narby – plants learn, remember and decide, without brains.
More to report later and maybe some of you will read the book and put what you think is important in the comments section.
I recently met a local herbalist, Myra Bonhage Hale and we are having fun sharing with each other. Check her facebook page.
