Octavo, paperback, 177 pp. line drawings. BRAND NEW. In this book, renowned biologist Daniel Chamovitz explores how plants experience sight, smell, touch, hearing, memory, and even awareness. Using cutting-edge research coupled with lively storytelling, Chamovitz explains the intimate details of plant behaviour, from how a willow tree knows when its neighbours have been commandeered by an army of ravenous beetles, and why an avocado ripens when you give it the company of a banana in a bag (it's the pheromones). And he settles the debate over whether the beloved basil on your kitchen windowsill cares whether you play Led Zeppelin or Bach. This is a rare inside look at the life of plants.
