Summary
Research is showing that plants are in constant and lively discourse they communicate, signaling to remote organs within an individual, eavesdropping on neighboring individuals, and exchanging information with other organisms ranging from other plants to microbes to animals. Plants lack central nervous systems, and the mechanisms coordinating plant sensing, behavior, and communication are quite different from the systems that accomplish similar tasks in animals. But they are no less impressive from an evolutionary perspective. In 'Plant Communication', Richard Karban puts an ear to the ground to reveal the world of plant communication and information sensing
