While humans possess five senses, plant researcher Stefano Mancuso estimates that plants have more than 20. These abilities could also prove useful for humans in future, he explains in the video. And at the GDI Trend Day on 14 March.
Plants are much more sensitive to threats than animals, says Mancuso, because they cannot run away. In order to survive, they have to sense changes in their environment much earlier in order to react to threats. And this “plant intelligence” could also be of use to humans.
Mancuso explains the ways in which plants sense the world in the video, and he’ll explain how humans can learn from these characteristics at the GDI Trend Day on 14 March.
