Prof. Ariel Novoplansky talks about the unique way plants communicate. Via a complex system of non-verbal communication, plants are able to warn each other of impending danger and experiences. He has mapped the ways plants communicate through their roots, an important factor in agricultural planning, and also proves that plants have memory. No need to be a horticulturist to appreciate this program. However, Prof. Novoplansky suggests you familiarize yourself before the program by watching his TED Talk.
