Do Plants Have Something to Say? (NYT)

Experience teaches plants to learn faster and forget slower in environments where it matters (Springer)

“Maybe we should admit that we hardly understand who we are, we hardly understand where we are at, we know very little compared to what there is to know,” she said. “To be open to explore and learn, I think that is the sign of wisdom, not of madness. And maybe wisdom and madness do look very similar, at some point.”
