Event description

Description

Did you know plants can communicate through sound and smell using both their leaves and their roots?

In this fascinating presentation, Dr Monica Gagliano unearths the secret language of plants. Plants are no longer seen as passive organisms with research showing they can sense gravity, light, temperature, soil quality and moisture content. Plants also repel enemies and trick animals into helping them reproduce. The presentation will also pose bigger questions such as are plants capable of learning and do plants have consciousness?

Dr Monica Gagliano is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Centre for Evolutionary Biology at the University of Western Australia.

This presentation is delivered by Switch Your Thinking as part of National Science Week 2017.
